Injury Update On Saints Linebacker Pete Werner

He's trending in the right direction.

New Orleans Saints linebacker Pete Werner practiced in a limited fashion for the first time since suffering an ankle injury against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9.

He'll have two more practices to increase his activity before Monday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

Werner recorded 74 tackles, two forced fumbles and three passes defended while playing almost every defensive snap when healthy this season. Until the Saints feel that he is fully healthy, however, he could split reps with Kaden Elliss.

Werner was the Saints' second-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
