If Junior Galette misses major time due to injury, here's how the Saints' defensive line might change

After spending the offseason trying to fortify the defense to make sure last seasonís woes do not carry over to next season, the New Orleans Saintsí efforts might have been undermined before the training camp even begins.

Junior Galette is reportedly considering surgery to repair an injured pectoral injury that could cause him to miss an extended period of time. As of now, according to the NFL Network, the edge rusher is weighing his options and waiting to see another doctor before deciding how to proceed.

Even if the injury isnít season ending, losing Galette for any period of time would be a difficult hit for this team to overcome. He has served as the Saintsí most productive pass rusher the last two seasons, finishing 2014 with 10 sacks.

Itís possible that Galetteís role was going to change ó and still could if he does not miss time ó from how he was used in previous seasons. Late last year, while nursing a knee injury, he was limited to pass-rushing situations, which helped mitigate some of the issues he faces defending the run and better strengthened the defense.

It would not be surprising if New Orleans picked its spots with Galette next season and limited him to situations where he could best succeed. But even under this scenario, which would mean less snaps, it seemed safe to assume that he would be good for at least 10 sacks.
