Alex Okafor Has Sprained Ankle, Bone Bruise

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.

Saints Bring Back Alex Okafor

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.

Saints Interested In Re-Signing Alex Okafor

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. If fully healthy in 2018, Okafor could be an excellent value pick in IDP leagues.
