ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Only one Saints defender hit the season's halfway point without missing at least one snap on defense.
A.J. Klein's streak was broken against Buffalo.
The Saints' leading tackler left Sunday's 47-10 win over the Bills after suffering an injury to his left ankle in the first quarter.
Klein appeared to suffer the injury in Buffalo's first few snaps, and he eventually came back to the lineup after getting re-taped.
A few plays later, Klein had to come out again, and the defensive captain walked to the locker room without assistance.
With Klein out of the game, Manti Te'o moved into his role and made a team-high six tackles.
