Saints CB Delvin Breaux Suffers Setback, May Not Return This Year


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Saints CB Delvin Breaux (fractured fibula) suffered a setback in practice this week, which will make it difficult to be activated this year.

  • Rapoport adds that a source described Breaux’s timeline for return as 3-6 weeks, which means he will likely remain on injured reserve for the duration of the season.
  • Nick Underhill first reported that Breaux was unlikely to be activated for this week’s game.

Saints actually designated Breaux as one of their two players to return from injured reserve a few weeks ago, which opened a three-week window of time for the team to add him to their active roster.

Breaux, 27, wound up signing on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent back in May of 2015. He’s currently in the third year of his three-year, $1.587 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $615,000 for the 2017 season before becoming a restricted free agent in 2018.

The Saints placed Breaux on injured reserve coming out of the preseason.

In 2016, Breaux appeared in six games and recorded 21 tackles, no interceptions and a pass defense for the Saints.
