The New Orleans Saints lost core special teams player and backup linebacker Nathan Stupar to a torn ACL, a source confirmed.
As first reported by NOLA.com, Stupar was injured during punt coverage in the Saints’ 52-38 victory over the Miami Dolphins — a disappointing development for a New Orleans team that has won three straight games to reach 3-2 and climb over .500 for the first time since 2013.
Linebacker depth has become a slight issue for the Saints, who also lost rookie starter Alex Anzalone to injured reserve with a shoulder injury two weeks ago.
Sullivan said in September that he didn’t think predictability was the problem for the Giants.

I think it goes a lot deeper than that, Sullivan said, via Howie Kussoy of the New York Post. I think we’ve certainly looked at the tape and haven’t necessarily had the sense of, ‘Oh man, they certainly had our playbook right here’ or ‘Holy cow, they must have been able to hear what we said on the headsets.’
We haven’t been out there long enough to be predictable.
What does this mean for the Giants? It’s possible that a fresh perspective on the offense will breathe some life into the Giants. It’s also hard for a head coach to manage the big picture aspects of a game and keep focused on calling plays.

With a porous offensive line, a shaky run game, and so much offensive talent sidelined with injuries, the change probably won’t fully right the ship. But the Giants have problems across the board, and the change may help start to get the offense back on track, which this team desperately needs.
