Saints TE Adam Trautman avoided a "major injury" to his foot or ankle, according to insider Nick Underhill.

We'll continue to keep you updated.

Saints TE Adam Trautman isn't listed on the Week 1 injury report. He suffered a foot injury in the 2nd preseason game but is ready for this weekend's regular-season opener vs. the Packers. Trautman is a fine bench stash but shouldn't be in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

The "initial belief" is that Saints TE Adam Trautman will be out 1-3 weeks with his foot injury, according to insider Nick Underhill. Trautman is visiting a foot specialist on Thursday to get another opinion. We'll look for further updates. But, for now, it looks like Trautman has a chance to be ready for Week 1 and will miss a couple of games at worst.

Saints TE Adam Trautman will get an MRI on the foot he injured in Monday night's preseason game vs. the Jaguars, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. X-rays on the foot came back clean. We'll continue to keep you updated on Trautman's status, but we'd avoid him in fantasy drafts until we know more.

Saints TE Adam Trautman went to the locker room on a cart during Monday night's preseason game. He had been getting checked for a foot or ankle injury in the sideline tent before riding to the locker room. We'll keep an eye on this situation. According to Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke, TE Nick Vannett saw his playing time increase after Trautman's departure while TE Juwan Johnson's role appeared unchanged.

Saints TE Adam Trautman underwent a pair of operations a month before training camp started, per beat writer Nick Underhill. The 2nd-year TE had his appendix removed and a cyst removed in his lower back. Beat writer Mike Triplett tweeted Friday that Trautman is “up to speed now.” The Saints are counting on him to take a step forward, especially with Michael Thomas set to miss regular season games. Trautman remains an enticing draft day target.
