For the second time in two days Wednesday, the New Orleans Saints placed a starter on injured reserve. This time it was rookie linebacker Alex Anzalone, with a shoulder injury, after veteran right tackle Zach Strief went on IR Tuesday.
It’s unclear if Anzalone has a chance to return this season after he sits out the minimum eight weeks. Either way, it’s a disappointing development for the promising rookie, who earned a starting job at weakside linebacker as a third-round draft pick out of Florida.
Anzalone had 16 tackles, 1 sack and 1 pass defense before he left the Saints’ Week 4 win over the Miami Dolphins on the opening drive.
Yes. As soon as he steps forward, they can knock the … I won’t say it, but they can hit him, Gase said. If he steps back or doesn’t move, now you’re looking at different kinds of penalties. Until you go through it, where a quarterback steps off the ball and starts working downfield and you watch one of them get blasted.

Cutler agreed with Gase that he was just carrying out his assignment. The quarterback even made light of the situation.
That’s what they told me to do: Sit there, don’t get hit, don’t touch anybody, don’t move, Cutler said. I feel like I executed that one.

Cutler signed a one-year, $10 million contract with Miami in August following a season-ending knee injury to former starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
The Dolphins (1-2) will host the Tennessee Titans (2-2) on Sunday.
