#Saints pass-rusher Alex Okafor, one of their top free agent signings and in the midst of breaking out, is out for the season with a torn Achilles, sources say. He’s helped that defense’s epic turnaround.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 20, 2017
In his first season in New Orleans, the defensive lineman has amassed 4.5 sacks, forced 2 fumbles and tallied 45 tackles. He signed with the team on a one-year deal so he will enter free agency in March while still recovering from his injury.
