Victor Butler has torn his ACL

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm not supremely confident in a group of UDFA's. I had high hopes for Butler. He's produced with limited playing time. Disappointing....

What? I don't get what you're saying.

Nevermind, I misread it.

And you don't think Mark is one of our top 3 RBs?
I think what he is getting to is the fact that Butler was injured trying to not run into Ingram, would it have been better
for the Saints if Ingram would have gone down?


What is easier for New Orleans to replace a starting pass rush threat of a LB, or a RB?

Thats about a wash to me. Maybe even slanted in Ingrams favor since Sproles is really a scat back. Losing Ingram would make us awfully slim at RB.

We still have numerous candidates for that OLB spot, albeit many are unknowns. And there may be a cagy old vet Ryas knows that can help in a pinch.

Kinda like the Gregg Williams/Pierson Preilou connection was at safety.

Re: Victor Butler has torn his ACL

Sean Payton and Belichick are the only two coaches that says its minor swelling and the player was actually near death. I was hoping for 10+ plus from butler but i guess next man up.


The end is nigh

Re: Victor Butler has torn his ACL

Very unfortunate.

I'm surprised more of them don't get hurt in the NFL.

Most people wouldn't last one play, much less a career.

Wish him the best. Sad news.
