New Orleans’ top pick, Andrus Peat, left the game in the first quarter after going down with an apparent leg injury.
Peat, making his second start at left tackle in place of an injuredTerron Armstead, was off to a solid start on the Saints’ opening drive, then went down.
He was helped off by trainers and immediately taken to the locker room. According to CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson, Peat’s return is questionable.
With Peat down, the Saints are now down to their fourth offensive tackle, Tony Hills, a player who has been on the roster for just two weeks.
Hills was signed after Armstead went down with a knee injury following the Dallas game. The seven-year veteran has played for 10 NFL teams, but he has just 13 games of experience.
