Many Saints fans were worried about the injury of Stephone Anthony their second year rookie linebacker, but according to Adam Schefer they have caught a break.
The team absolutely believes they will have their former first round pick back by week 1 of the 2016 NFL season. This is huge news. While their first rounder from this year went down today with an apparent knee injury, if he too can avoid the injury bullet, the Saints defense could be tough.
Saints LB Stephone Anthony, who suffered leg injury last week, could miss couple weeks but “absolutely” expected back by opener, per source.
