The Saints’ struggling defense could be even worse Sunday against the Panthers.
New Orleans will travel to Carolina without cornerbacks Marshon Lattimore (concussion) and Sterling Moore (chest), the team announced Friday.
Game Youth Jesse Barfield Jersey Lattimore was the Saints’ first-round pick in this year’s NFL Draft, while Moore surprised as a reliable slot corner last season.
The Saints are currently last in the NFL in yards allowed per game (512.5), and last in passing yards per game at 388.5. Without Lattimore and Moore in the lineup, Carolina should have a field day in front of its home crowd.
Cam Newton is currently questionable to face the Saints, but the struggling quarterback should play and be ready to get his season moving in the right direction.
The Saints will also be without starting offensive tackles Terron Armstead (shoulder) and Zach Strief (knee).
After President Donald Trump criticized NFL players who lodge pregame protests, several players protested during the national anthem in Week 3.
Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver: “I [put my hand over my heart] for the troops and military. People are going to try to misconstrue and depict a different picture than what it really is. I love the military, like I said last year when I took the knee. It is nothing against the military at all. The anthem is different for other people. People say it’s unpatriotic to kneel, but it’s unpatriotic of the president for not respecting our rights.” Evans knelt alongside fellow receiver DeSean Jackson.
DeShone Kizer, Cleveland Browns quarterback: “It’s a tragedy in our country that we have to sit here and still have these discussions. I know for a fact that I’m no ‘son of a bitch’ and I plan on continuing forward and doing whatever I can from my position to promote the equality that’s needed in this country.” Kizer stood for the anthem.
