Shark Bites

The NFL last week fined Saints EDGE Cameron Jordan -- as well as 2 coaches and the franchise -- for allegedly faking an injury late in the Week 13 loss to the Buccaneers. But the team and player both say MRI the next day revealed a mid-foot sprain in Jordan's left foot that he has been getting treated for through the bye week. We'll see about Jordan's status for Sunday's game against the Falcons, but he returned to that Bucs game. So we'd bet he'll be ready to play.

Recent Shark Bites

Saints Edge Cameron Jordan (ankle) and LB Pete Werner (shoulder, oblique) are active for today's game against the Panthers. Neither is a high-level IDP play, though there's upside to the matchup for each player.

Saints Edge Cameron Jordan (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. He appears to be in better shape than last week, though, when Jordan played through a questionable tag. Then, he missed all three days of practice before playing limited snaps (29%) in a loss to the Lions. Jordan managed limited practices Thursday and Friday this week, so we'd expect him to be more involved Sunday. There's still risk, though, especially for a player with just 2 sacks all season. You can find Jordan in DL3 territory of our Week 14 rankings. There's upside to the matchup, though, if you're looking for an option down there.

Saints Edge Cameron Jordan (ankle) is active for today's game against the Lions. He didn't practice at all during the week and faces an opponent allowing less than 2 sacks per fame on the season. You probably have a better -- or at least safer -- option for your IDP lineup this week.

Saints Edge Cameron Jordan (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Jordan missed practice all week. HC Dennis Allen said Friday that the team will give Jordan "a chance to play until [the] last moment," according to Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football. You should plan as though Jordan won't be available for your IDP lineup.

The Saints have agreed to a two-year extension with Edge Cameron Jordan. The deal includes $27.5 million guaranteed, a particularly noteworthy number given that Jordan is already 34. He's coming off significant declines by nearly all measures last season, traditional stats and advanced metrics. This pact says New Orleans believes Jordan will remain a big part of the defense at least through this year, though. With a contract that now runs through 2025, Jordan's presence for 2024 seems like a lock as well. We'll see beyond that. Jordan doesn't sit as high in our IDP rankings as previous years. But he's also likely to go in value range of your drafts.
