The NFL’s $100,000 fines to five head coaches — and $250,000 fines to their teams — showed how serious the league is about its risk-mitigation efforts.

The NFL made it crystal clear with a Friday night memo to teams reminding them about game-day protocols, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.

The memo emphasized face covering requirements and the penalties for not adhering to them.

“The League will continue to closely monitor compliance and impose discipline on cubs and individuals who violate this rule,” the memo reads.

It also states players who are not substituting into the game are...

Derland Moore, New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame member, dies at 68

Derland Moore, a legendary New Orleans Saints defensive tackle who played 13 seasons in the Crescent City, has died, the team announced Friday.

Moore died Thursday following a long illness. He was 68.

Moore was the Saints' second round draft pick in 1973 (29th overall) and played in 170 games (146 starts) from 1973-1985. The 6-foot-4, 250-pounder finished his 14-year NFL career with the New York Jets in 1986.

Moore led the Saints in sacks in 1980, earned Pro Bowl honors in 1983, and was later inducted into the Saints Hall of Fame and the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame. He was also...

Saints lineman Nick Easton has been ready to play wherever he's been needed

  • News source: BY LUKE JOHNSON | Staff writer

In the offseason between the 2018 and 2019 seasons, the New Orleans Saints had a gap to fill at center after long-time starter Max Unger retired, so they went out and signed veteran Nick Easton away from the Minnesota Vikings.

Then, in the span of about 12 months, the Saints used their top picks of consecutive drafts on interior linemen Erik McCoy and Cesar Ruiz, both of whom they anticipate being around for the foreseeable future. They also signed left guard Andrus Peat to a massive five-year extension.

That left Easton without a clear path to a gameday role heading into each of the...

Saints to continue piping in artificial crowd noise; NFL to increase max decibel allowance

  • News source: BY LUKE JOHNSON | Staff writer

Outside of some friends and family of players, the Superdome still won't have any fans in the stands when the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers square off this Sunday.

But the artificial crowd noise will make a return for the Week 3 contest. And it'll be a little louder this time around.

After limiting the piped in crowd noise to 70 decibels for the games in Weeks 1 and 2, the NFL is allowing teams to increase the noise to 80 decibels this week.

That decision is left up to each individual club — it was not clear from the press box whether the Raiders used it last week — and...

Ex-Saint Breaux sues two former team doctors

METAIRIE, La. -- Former New Orleans Saints cornerback Delvin Breaux has sued two former team doctors for negligence, claiming his leg injury was misdiagnosed in 2017.

Breaux wound up having surgery to repair a fractured fibula during the 2017 preseason. Former team orthopedists Deryk Jones and Misty Suri initially diagnosed the injury as a bone contusion.

The case gained notoriety because it led to the Saints' decision to fire the orthopedists.

However, the Ochsner Health System, which employs the two doctors, said it found no evidence of a "misdiagnosis" when it reviewed Breaux's case...

Saints WR Thomas (ankle) ruled out vs. Packers

METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints receiver Michael Thomas won't play in Sunday night's game against the Green Bay Packers after he was ruled out for the second straight week with his high ankle sprain.

Thomas has not practiced since he suffered the ankle injury during the final minutes of New Orleans' Week 1 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, the team chose not to place him on injured reserve -- which would have required him to miss at least three games. So there is still hope that he could potentially return as soon as next week.

The Saints' offense struggled without...

Michael Thomas will miss his second straight game with a high ankle sprain when the New Orleans Saints host the Green Bay Packers for Sunday Night Football.

It is no surprise that the standout wideout is unavailable. Thomas did not practice for the second straight week. He was injured late in the season opener for New Orleans.

For the Packers, their top wide receiver may also miss the matchup of NFC heavyweights. Davante Adams, who did not practice all week after suffering a hamstring injury last week versus the Lions, is listed as doubtful.

Saints linebacker Chase Hansen will also miss...

Saints receiver Michael Thomas ruled out for the second straight week

The New Orleans Saints will once again have to give it a go without Michael Thomas.

The Saints star receiver will miss his second consecutive game with an ankle injury, as the team listed him as out on Friday’s injury report.

This will mark the first time in Thomas’ professional career he will have missed more than one game in a single season. He injured his ankle with about two minutes remaining in the season opener, when running back Latavius Murray rolled into the back of Thomas’ legs at the end of a run play.

Since that game, Thomas has not been present during any portion of Saints...

Davante Adams doubtful, Kenny Clark questionable for Packers

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said on Friday that wide receiver Davante Adams was “probably doubtful” to play against the Saints on Sunday.

Adams is now definitely doubtful. That’s how he’s been listed on the Packers injury report as a result of the hamstring injury that knocked him out of last week’s win over the Lions.

Defensive tackle Kenny Clark did not play in that game because of a groin injury. He was able to practice on a limited basis the last two days and is listed as questionable.

“He’s made progress, there’s no doubt,” LaFleur said, via the team’s website. “He’s definitely...

There was never much sign that Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas would be in the lineup against the Packers on Sunday night and official word that he won’t play came on Friday afternoon.

A high-ankle sprain will keep Thomas out of the lineup for the second straight week. Thomas has not practiced since suffering the injury.

It’s set to be a night without either team’s star receiver. Davante Adams is doubtful to play for Green Bay due to a hamstring injury.

Emmanuel Sanders, Tre'Quan Smith, Deonte Harris, Marquez Callaway, and Bennie Fowler handled wideout duties for New Orleans with...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers won all four games that Davante Adams missed last season because of turf toe, and it looks like they will put that streak on the line this week.

Coach Matt LaFleur said Friday that Adams will probably be doubtful for Sunday night's game at the New Orleans Saints because of the hamstring injury he suffered last week against the Detroit Lions.

The Pro Bowl receiver did not practice again Friday, marking the third straight day he worked with the rehab group. Adams tied a franchise record in Week 1 with 14 catches against the Vikings. He had three...
