  • Saints' James Hurst: Set to play Sunday

    Hurst (concussion) was a full participant in practice Friday and does not carry a game designation ahead of Sunday's contest against the 49ers.

    Hurst sustained a concussion during the Saints' Week 10 loss to the Steelers, leaving him sidelined for the following game against the Rams. However, the 31-year-old appears to have cleared protocols and should step back in as New Orleans' starting left tackle against the 49ers' dangerous pass rush.

  • Saints' James Hurst: Sitting out Sunday

    Hurst (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams.

    Hurst was forced out with a concussion during the Saints' Week 10 loss to the Steelers, leaving him sidelined for each practice ahead of Sunday's game. The starting left tackle will now look to clear the league's protocols before New Orleans' next game against San Francisco on Sunday, Nov. 27. With the availability of guard Andrus Peat (triceps) up in the air, the Saints may be left with a patchwork offensive line against the Rams' dominant defensive front.

  • Saints' James Hurst: Won't return Sunday

    Hurst (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Steelers.

    Hurst is now slated to miss the rest of Sunday's contest versus Pittsburgh due to concussion symptoms. With fellow left tackle Trevor Penning (toe) already ruled out for Week 10, Landon Young, Lewis Kidd and Calvin Throckmorton are candidates to replace the 30-year-old on the team's offensive line.

  • Saints' James Hurst: All set for Week 1

    Hurst (foot) was not listed on Wednesday's injury report.

    Hurst appears fully recovered from the foot injury he sustained mid-August, which is a huge boon for the Saints heading into a Week 1 matchup against the division-rival Falcons. The 30-year-old looks primed to start at left tackle until rookie first-rounder Trevor Penning (toe) returns from IR.

  • Saints' James Hurst: Hopes to return soon

    Coach Dennis Allen said after Friday's preseason finale against the Chargers that he believes Hurst (foot) will return "sooner than later," Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

    Hurst sustained a foot injury in mid-August and was held out of Friday's matchup. It sounds as though the 30-year-old will have a chance to return to action in time for the Saints' Week 1 matchup against Atlanta on Sept. 11, which would be particularly crucial since rookie Trevor Penning sustained a toe injury Friday. Once he's healthy, Hurst is expected to serve as the Saints' starting left tackle.

  • Saints' James Hurst: Dealing with foot injury

    Hurst is dealing with a foot injury, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

    Head coach Dennis Allen relayed to the media that Hurst is dealing with a foot issue, but he failed to elaborate much on the matter. The severity of the injury is unknown, but Hurst missing any time would be a blow to the Saints' offensive. The veteran left tackle projects to be the starter this season, though rookie Trevor Penning has the tools to be a starting-caliber tackle. Penning was chosen 19th overall in the 2022 NFL Draft but is a bit raw at this early stage of his career. Hurst's injury is one to monitor, as it could have a major impact on the Saints' offense.

  • Saints' James Hurst: Active against Packers

    Hurst (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers.

    Hurst missed Friday's practice and was originally listed as questionable, but he recovered quickly enough to be part of the active roster in the season opener. He should provide depth on the offensive line for this one behind Terron Armstead at left tackle.

  • Saints' James Hurst: Misses practice Friday

    Hurst missed practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's Week 1 matchup against the Packers due to a knee injury, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    It's not clear when Hurst sustained his knee injury, but his status for the season opener is in jeopardy due to the issue. If the 29-year-old is available Sunday, he's expected to serve in a depth role behind Terron Armstead.
