  Saints | Seven assistant coaches unavailable for Week 2 game    Sat Sep 18, 11:15 AM

Seven members of the New Orleans Saints' coaching staff will be unavailable for Week 2's game against the Carolina Panthers because of COVID-19 protocol, according to the club. Wide receivers coach Curtis Johnson, offensive line coach Brendan Nugent, tight ends coach Dan Roushar, running backs coach Joel Thomas, offensive analyst Jim Chaney, offensive assistant Declan Doyle and special teams assistant Phil Galiano, along with a nutritionist and a player, all tested positive for COVID-19 following the team's Week 1 victory against the Green Bay Packers despite being vaccinated and did not make the trip to Carolina. The gameday duties for Johnson, Nugent, Roushar and Thomas will be fulfilled by the rest of the Saints' offensive staff.

Footballguys view: The Saints were lucky to avoid a team-wide outbreak. This is a reminder that player availability will be affected by covid this year, even on teams that have 100% vaccination.

  Saints | Marshon Lattimore iffy for Week 2    Fri Sep 17, 01:06 PM

New Orleans Saints CB Marshon Lattimore (thumb) is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 2 versus the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Footballguys view: D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, and Sam Darnold's matchup will get easier if Lattimore is out, but the Saints did acquire Bradley Roby from the Texans, so there's not as big a dropoff to their #2 corner than expected.
