Saints Corner Carted to Locker Room on TNF

The New Orleans Saints' already thin secondary took a significant hit in the first quarter of their Thursday Night Football matchup with the Arizona Cardinals. Starting cornerback Bradley Roby was carted to the locker room following a checkup in the team's medical tent.

Roby appeared to suffer a lower leg injury on the Cardinals' first offensive drive. The Saints entered the game already without four-time Pro Bowler Marshon Lattimore and Paulson Adebo in the secondary. 

Should Roby miss the remainder of tonight's contest, the Saints will be down their top three corners. That could prove devastating against Cardinals All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who is playing for the first time this season after returning from a six-game suspension.

Roby joined the Saints as a free agent during the 2021 offseason and has appeared in 20 games for the team, starting six. Before that, he played two years with the Houston Texans after a five-year stint with the Denver Broncos. The former 31st overall of the 2013 NFL Draft has totalled 11 interceptions and 82 passes defended over 119 games.
