Saints CB Breaux to remain on IR for rest of season

The Saints are putting him back on injured reserve after suffering a setback last week working his way back from a fractured fibula he suffered during training camp.

Breaux was anticipated to be the team's top cornerback but during training camp he was found to have a stress fracture, rather than a previously-diagnosed 'contusion'.

Lattimore, a rookie, has been one of the top cornerbacks in the National Football League this season, and it's unclear if Breaux would have been able to make his way onto the field if he had been healthy.

"I wouldn't describe it as a saga". "Obviously, you want your players healthy". Later tests revealed it was a far more serious ailment, and the Saints fired team orthopedists Deryk Jones and Misty Suri as a result of the situation. "It's still not 100 percent, but it is going well and all the indications we have when we do the scans and the testing show it healing properly".

Breaux spent the first six weeks of the regular season on injured reserve while recovering from surgery to fix a fracture fibula and was eligible to return to the active roster. He told reporters on October 30th "I'm catching up now, last week like I said, I went full practice last week". Through three years with the Saints, he has played in 22 games, hauling in 3 interceptions and defensing 20 passes.

Marshon Lattimore and Ken Crawley will continue to serve as New Orleans' starting corners in his absence.

The McDonogh 35 graduate is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
