New Orleans Announce Starting QB For Week 5

The New Orleans Saints offence has been under an enormous injury cloud over the past few weeks, as Alvin Kamara, Jameis Winston and Michael Thomas all missed the Week 4 loss in London to the Minnesota Vikings, and unfortunately for New Orleans, not all of them are going to return for Week 5.

Today, head coach Dennis Allen announced that for the second straight week, Jameis Winston will be missing, which means that Andy Dalton will get the start again, but after a solid performance in Week 4, the Saints are confident they can win games with the former Bengal under centre. Unfortunately for Winston, he just couldn't overcome the back and ankle injuries that have held him out of practice for two straight weeks, and with a long season ahead, it makes sense for New Orleans to be careful with their starting Quarterback.

New Orleans currently sit in fourth place in the NFC South, but if they can string some wins together, they could potentially make a Wild Card run in the NFC, but in order to do so, they'll need to take down the surprisingly tough Seattle Seahawks in Week 5, without their starting QB.
