Alex Okafor News
New Orleans Saints defensive end Alex Okafor (ankle, knee) was diagnosed with a sprained ankle and knee bone bruise after he underwent an MRI exam on Wednesday, according to sources informed of the situation. He's considered week-to-week and it's unclear when he'll return to practice. Okafor is coming off a torn Achilles in Week 11 of last year, but he was having a strong year before the injury, tallying 43 tackles, 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. A fully healthy season for Okafor could put him on the IDP map, but he's a big injury risk.
The New Orleans Saints re-signed linebacker Alex Okafor on a two-year deal worth up to $10 million, according to a source. Okafor was having an All-Pro season before he suffered a season-ending Achilles injury. He racked up 43 tackles and 4.5 sacks in just 10 games, and the Saints understandably want to see what he can do over a full season. New Orleans defensive unit is slowly becoming a scary group and one that fantasy owners should target as a sleeper.
The New Orleans Saints are interested in re-signing linebacker Alex Okafor, according to a source familiar with the situation. However, Okafor is also drawing interest around the league, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers being one of the interested parties. Okafor was having a career year with 43 tackles (27 solo), 4.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and three passes defensed before a season-ending Achilles injury in Week 11.

New Orleans Saints defensive end Alex Okafor (Achilles) suffered a season-ending Achilles injury against Washington in Week 11. Okafor is in his fifth NFL season and first in New Orleans. His signing this offseason proved to be a key part of the defensive turnaround the Saints have experienced this season. Okafor ends his season with 4.5 sacks and a pair of forced fumbles. The defense struggled last week and may have a bit more trouble from here on out without a key cog. Third-round pick Trey Hendrickson will likely step in for Okafor at defensive end.
