Armstead out 4 - 6 months (shoulder)

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Time to move on, Armstead is an injury liability. Another great choice by our FO giving a massive contract to someone who can't stay healthy....

Peat should play LT. No matter how good Ramczyk is, rookie at LT is not very smart. Even Armstead slowly became starter.
Why? Armstead was a rookie when he started. He did okay.

This is an opportunity for the young guy to step up. Armstead can start the season on IR and return for the stretch and playoff runs. The new rule allows two recalls from IR this season instead of just the one last season.

I can understand his frustration when they all undoutedly work so hard, but WHEN he does come back, he will have a new ailment. History has told us that much.

Re: Armstead out 4 - 6 months (shoulder)

So this injury happened at Wednesday's practice. I thought they were only going half speed at this time of year ? Oh boy. I like Armstead but he can't stay fit. When he eventually becomes healthy again, maybe trade talk won't sound so silly after all.

On the flip side, it's possible San Fran did us a favor by drafting Reuben Foster and leaving Ramsczk available to us.

Just Say No to Olympic Lifts, at Least for NFL Players

Probably not popular, but I'm coming around to the opinion that Sean Payton is in some way responsible for the injury plague.

I blame his obsession with crossfit....I want fat Payton back

On the radio they said it was his hip. His hip is torn, not his shoulder according to 100.3 ESPN Nola sports radio (gus kattengill)
