Most Recent Shark Bites

Saints DE Marcus Davenport is enduring "a particularly rough offseason health-wise," according to Katherine Terrell of The Athletic. The 5th-year edge player has had 2 surgeries for his injured right shoulder and 3 on his left pinky. The finger injury dates back to college, with the most recent setback being an infection developing after he broke a plate previously inserted into the finger. Davenport says the digit is down to a "nub." The combo of operations have kept Davenport out of workouts this offseason, and it's not yet clear whether he'll start training camp on time. "Training camp would be the goal," HC Dennis Allen said recently. "We've just got to wait and see where he's at." Davenport is in the final year of his rookie contract and coming off a career-high 9 sacks in just 11 games. If he can get all the way back far enough ahead of Week 1, there's plenty of upside. But Davenport also has yet to play more than 13 games in a season. So we'll be tempering expectations.

The Ravens have agreed to a 5-year, $70 million deal with S Marcus Williams, according to multiple reports. Williams will get $37 million guaranteed. Williams takes over the FS spot in Baltimore and leaves a significant hole in New Orleans' secondary. He's not a strong IDP option.

Saints DE Marcus Davenport (ankle) is active for today's game against the Falcons. Use him as planned in IDP lineups.

The Saints have downgraded S Marcus Williams and C Erik McCoy to out for today's game against the Panthers. Each starter came off the COVID list late in the week and clearly isn't yet ready to play.

The Saints have activated S Marcus Williams and C Eric McCoy from the COVID list, making them available for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

The Saints have activated LB Demario Davis and S Malcolm Jenkins from the COVID list. They placed S Marcus Williams on the list Wednesday, however, which should knock him out for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Saints DE Marcus Davenport (shoulder, knee) is active for tonight's game against the Dolphins. He should be in for plenty of snaps, as New Orleans has 2 reserve DEs on the COVID list.

The Saints on Monday added LB Kwon Alexander to the COVID list. That leaves New Orleans' defense without its top 2 LBs, as Demario Davis landed on the list on Dec. 24. Rookie Pete Werner figures to be the playing time leader at the position against the Dolphins tonight in their absence.

Saints DE Marcus Davenport is questionable for Monday night's game against the Dolphins, with shoulder and knee injuries. He managed limited practices all week, though, and played his normal snap allotment in last week's win over the Buccaneers. We'd bet on Davenport playing. The late kickoff, however, obviously adds risk to waiting on him in your IDP lineup. Consider securing Saints DT David Onyemata -- or another available starter from the game -- as insurance if you plan to use Davenport.

The Saints on Friday placed LB Demario Davis on the COVID list after a positive test. That'll knock him out for Monday night's game against the Dolphins.

The Saints have placed DE Cameron Jordan on the COVID list. We'll see whether his situation gives him a chance to return for Sunday's game at the Jets. New Orleans has already been down DE Marcus Davenport (shoulder) the past 2 weeks and could be in particularly rough shape at the edge spots if Jordan remains out.

The Saints have ruled DE Marcus Davenport out or the 2nd straight game because of a shoulder injury. With DE Tanoh Kpassagnon also out (ankle), Cameron Jordan and Carl Granderson figure to lead the position again. Jordan is an easy play in most IDP lineups. It's also an upside spot for Granderson, in deeper IDP formats.

The Saints have ruled DE Marcus Davenport out for Thursday night's game against the Bills with a shoulder injury. New Orleans will also miss DE Tanoh Kpassagnon, leaving Carl Granderson as the likely playing-time leader opposite Cameron Jordan on the D-line. Granderson has just 1 sacks and 4 total QB hits on the season and hasn't cracked 40% playing time since Week 2. Jalyn Holmes is the only other healthy true edge player on the current roster. The Saints could struggle to pressure Josh Allen this week, though Jordan and DT David Onyemata stand out in that area.

Saints S Malcolm Jenkins (knee) is active for today's game against the Falcons.

Saints S Malcolm Jenkins is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He missed Wednesday's practice with his knee injury but returned for limited workouts the past 2 days. We'll check his status Sunday.

The Saints have activated LB Kwon Alexander and DE Marcus Davenport. Both players are active for tonight's game against the Seahawks. We'd still go ahead and use LB Pete Werner ahead of Alexander in IDP lineups if you were planning to.

The Saints on Tuesday designated DE Marcus Davenport (pectoral) and LB Kwon Alexander (elbow) to return from IR. That doesn't yet restore them to the active roster. The team will have this week and the next 2 to decide on that for each player. But the designation suggests the Saints believe each player is close to being ready. Davenport should work his way quickly back into the starting lineup upon his return. Alexnader, on the other hand, might have to watch rookie LB Pete Werner take his job. We'll see how that situation develops over the next few weeks.
