The #Saints have placed LB Victor Butler, S Roman Harper, and CB Patrick Robinson on PUP list, I'm told.

New Orleans Saints defenders Victor Butler, Roman Harper, Patrick Robinson will start training camp on PUP list, report says | NOLA.com

New Orleans Saints linebacker Victor Butler, safety Roman Harper and cornerback Patrick Robinson are slated to begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list, according to the NFL Network.

Butler sustained a torn ACL during the last week of organized team activities in mid-June and had surgery the following week to repair the tear. So Butler still remains in danger of missing the whole season, but landing on injured reserve with a designation for a return could still be a possibility.

Harper practiced sporadically during the on-field offseason workouts with an unspecified injury. Robinson sustained a knee injury during minicamp in early June.

Butler will be a loss imo.
If nothing else he would have allowed s better rotation. Luckily Safety has a fsir bit of depth.

Butler will hurt... but we just might get lucky... either he gets back for the playoffs, or our other LBers develop nicely, or both.

Re: Saints place three on PUP?

According to PUP rules, either player can come back to practice at any point prior to the season, but I'm not too optimistic about that happening, particularly in the case of Robinson. P-Rob is dealing with a knee injury sustained during minicamp this off-season. Meanwhile, Roman Harper's reason for landing on the PUP list is unspecified, just the way we like it.

The biggest winners of Roman Harper and Patrick Robinson on PUP are Vaccaro and Corey White. Tons of 1st team reps await them.

Which means opportunity is knocking for Kenny Vaccaro, Jabari Greer and Corey White. With two first team level talents now completely missing training camp reps, those spots are wide open and for the taking.

Vaccaro has possibly the most to gain from Harper's absence. All the Roman Harper haters out there just creamed their pants. Yesterday was like their Christmas. As a first round draft pick, Vaccaro was already expected to contribute early. Now he's practically got no choice. We'll get to see what he's made of sooner rather than later. Which is good because I'm a very impatient man. Just ask my proctologist. Considering Vaccaro's pedigree, I'd expect him to embrace this situation and not flounder in confusion.

With Robinson out, it means Jabari Greer can breath a sigh of relief. A little bit of the heat is off him for the time being. Which should leave him more time to purse all that artsy crap he's into. If Greer plays well, he could really solidify himself as the No. 2 cornerback behind Keenan Lewis. Of course the same could be said for Corey White. He's the potential underdog story here. But at the very least, White probably steps into the starting nickel spot, which is a promotion.

Saints training camp is still a few days away but things are picking up steam, football-type events are starting to happen and it's making me tingly in my pants! Are you getting excited!?!?!?
