Person familiar with injury to AP: Saints LB Butler seeking 2nd opinion on apparent ACL tear

NEW ORLEANS — An MRI indicates that New Orleans outside linebacker Victor Butler has a torn anterior cruciate ligament, but it is too early to speculate on whether he will miss the whole season, a person familiar with the situation said Wednesday.

The person, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Saints have not disclosed the injury, said Butler will travel to Gulf Breeze, Fla., next week to seek a second opinion from noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews. The person said there remains hope that even if Butler starts the season on injured reserve, he could return as Ray Lewis did for the defending champion Baltimore Ravens late last season.

New Orleans Saints linebacker Victor Butler to have ACL surgery Tuesday, source says | NOLA.com
A second opinion confirmed what initially was diagnosed, so injured New Orleans Saints outside linebacker Victor Butler will have surgery to repaire his torn anterior cruciate ligament Tuesday, a source said Thursday afternoon.

While it is likely Butler will miss the 2013 season, the Saints haven't determined if he should be placed on injured reserve.
