Washington OLB Junior Galette tore his right Achilles' tendon and is expected to miss the season, the Washington Times reports. Galette missed all of last season after tearing his left Achilles' tendon in August but re-signed in March and had apparently been progressing well. Washington could use the pass rush help, but the defense should have Ryan Kerrigan and 2nd-year man Preston Smith set to start on the edges for 2016. Losing Galette doesn't alter the outlook for a defense that already sits well outside of starter territory for fantasy football drafts.

Washington OLB Junior Galette tore his left Achilles' tendon near the end of Wednesday's practice. ESPN's John Keim reports that Galette faces a 6-to-8-month rehab. Second-year man Trent Murphy is the next guy up in Galette's place opposite OLB Ryan Kerrigan. A quick emergence from rookie Preston Smith would certainly help, though. Washington's D looks likely to remain among the league's weaker units. Murphy and Smith will need to prove that they bring some IDP intrigue before you should bother with them.

Saints LB Junior Galette didn't show up on this week's injury report, but that doesn't mean his knee is back to 100% after he hurt it in the loss to the Panthers. The New Orleans pass-rusher told ESPN.com that he figures to see the same part-time role that he did last week, when he registered 2 sacks amid just 27 snaps against the Bears. “Right now my knee’s not 100 percent," Galette said. "So just being smart and making sure I’m not playing 60 snaps on half a knee.” The edge man is only an option in deep, sack-favoring IDP leagues, and the Saints make for a weak team-D play regardless of Galette's snap count.

The Saints have re-signed Junior Galette to a 3-year deal. Galette has been a situational rush end to this point. The new contract suggests, however, that the team sees him as a starter at 3-4 OLB. New DC Rob Ryan is ushering the scheme switch. Galette tallied 9.5 sacks over the past 2 years, adding 17 QB hits and 38 hurries. He's a dark-horse candidate for 10 sacks and a potential sleeper in IDP leagues that reward pressure numbers.
