Okafor Done For The Season!!!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He would have been key in the run heavy rams game. They’re gonna run right at his replacement. I also just read he was the highest rated player in the game, per PFF...

This is a tough loss...I am being selfish because I know it is tougher for him. The one game in this winning stretch that we really need a healthy D and we have some definite out's and some maybe outs

I could tell the way the trainers were looking at his ankle that he may have torn his Achilles. Poor fella! I don't think we have a person on the roster who can do what he does

Re: Okafor Done For The Season!!!

Injuries suck for everyone but one way to combat this is to RUN THE BALL. Rams are ranked 29th defending the run. Let the O line maul, create lanes for Ingram/Kamara & keep our defense off the field.

No need for shoot outs. Just wear em down.

This is why I pitched the Tony McDaniel signing. Run stuffer. Maybe if Lattimore and Klein's ankles were healthy. That's a weak spot with a rookie DE/Kikaha on a fragile knee, and Mauti. I'd run right at that with Gurley.

Yep. I don't like the idea of Kikaha getting more than 20 snaps a game defending the run. The last thing we need is him going at it with a 300 lb lineman all game. His knees wouldn't hold up ... especially after 3 ACL tears.
