Victor Butler has torn his ACL
 
1 Attachment(s)
A source tells the Times-Picayune that Saints OLB Victor Butler tore his ACL during Tuesday's practice.

After showing significant potential as a pass-rusher in a part-time role with the Cowboys over the last four seasons, Butler went shopping for playing time in free agency. He landed a two-year, $3 million contract with the Saints and was expected to start at the SAM linebacker spot in Rob Ryan's 3-4 scheme. Now he's looking at a season on the injured reserve list, leaving Martez Wilson as the next man up. The injury happened during a collision with Mark Ingram during what was supposed to be a non-contact practice.

Didn't want to up this to the front page yesterday because people would start freaking out. Guess I have no choice now it's revealed to be serious.

Sucks.

Would have loved to have him this year, but this just makes me look forward to what Junior and Martez can do with more snaps. I'm saddened and excited at the same time.

We have the worst luck with linebackers

Signed dan morgan in 2009 to pair with vilma - IR
Casillas tore up preseason and SP put him in shanles spot for the start - IR preseason week 4
Signed clint ingram from the jags in 2009 - IR

Was excited to see butler but guess martez and junior will be getting extra snaps now, god help us if someone gets injured in camp or preseason

Our linebacker depth chart is starting to sort itself out.

Opens the door for Thomas or Reddick to show what they've got. Sucks to lose Butler, but I'm looking at the silver lining.
