NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The Saints defense survived giving up 31 points to Washington Sunday but did suffer a loss in the form of Alex Okafor, whose season will reportedly be over due to a torn Achilles, suffered during the team's eighth straight win.

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.
