    Baun will have to sit out for the remainder of the regular season as he recovers from an ankle injury he sustained in Week 13 at Tampa Bay. The Saints will probably be forced to lean more heavily on Kaden Elliss at linebacker in the absence of the 2020 third-rounder.

  • Saints' Zack Baun: Forced out Monday

    Baun was ruled out after going down with an ankle injury in Monday's game against the Buccaneers, John Hendrix of reports.

    Baun was able to walk off under his own power while heading into the medical tent on New Orleans' sideline in the first half, according to Hendrix. While the nature of this injury is still unclear, the 25-year-old will have extra time to recover while the Saints are on bye Week 14. With starting linebacker Pete Werner (ankle) once again inactive, Andrew Dowell and Nephi Sewell will likely take on bigger roles for the remainder of this divisional matchup.

  • Saints' Zack Baun: Dealing with a hamstring injury

    Saints head coach Dennis Allen said Tuesday that Baun is dealing with a hamstring injury, Ross Jackson of USA Today reports.

    Baun logged five tackles during the Saints' preseason opener and looks good in his new role as weak-side linebacker. The 2020 third-round pick will likely find himself in a rotation with second-round rookie Pete Werner (leg), but that could change if Werner continues to miss time.

  • Saints' Zack Baun: Looking good in new role

    Baun logged five tackles, including one tackle for loss, and a pass deflection during Saturday's preseason opener against the Ravens.

    After playing on the strong side during his rookie year, Baun seemed to be a more natural fit at weak-side linebacker during last weekend's preseason opener. While he may not be much of an IDP prospect as long as he has to rotate with Kwon Alexander and second-round rookie Pete Werner (leg), that could change if Werner continues to miss time and/or something happens to Alexander, who's bouncing back from an Achilles injury that ended his 2020 campaign.

    The 2020 third-round pick worked on the strongside as a rookie but played only 82 defensive snaps. Baun could earn a larger role in 2021 with a strong showing in camp, though Demario Davis should remain the leader of the unit.
