The New Orleans Saints don't draft running backs often, but their track record of success certainly gives good reason for excitement about rookie Kendre Miller.

And after two weeks nursing a hamstring injury he's set to make his NFL debut in Week 3, a perfect opportunity with the Saints desperately thin at the position. It's a day he's as excited for as anyone, considering he grew up an Aaron Rodgers fan and idolizing the atmosphere where the Saints play the Packers this week.

And after two weeks nursing a hamstring injury he's set to make his NFL debut in Week 3, a perfect opportunity with the Saints desperately thin at the position. It's a day he's as excited for as anyone, considering he grew up an Aaron Rodgers fan and idolizing the atmosphere where the Saints play the Packers this week.

"Lambeau Field is going to be like a childhood dream," Miller said this week after being a full participant in practice both days.

It's an NFL debut that could've potentially happened a week earlier, with Miller getting in a workout before the game and that hamstring appearing healthy enough for action. In the end the coaching staff opted to play it safe and went into the game with only two running backs in Jamaal Williams and Tony Jones Jr. Things got dicey when Williams went down with a hamstring injury in the first half, but Jones stepped up with a pair of touchdowns in the 20-17 win. ...

ESPN: Packers playmakers Aaron Jones, Christian Watson 'getting closer' to playing vs. Saints

It sounds like a couple of key Green Bay Packers contributors are going to be real game-time decisions when they kick off with the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler cautioned that the Packers are known for practicing patience with injured players, but noted that wide receiver Christian Watson and running back Aaron Jones are both trending up in advance of this week’s matchup.

More from Fowler:

Jones and Watson are two of five Packers players who are questionable to play against the Saints this week — their teammates David Bakhtiari (knee), Lukas Van Ness (elbow), and...

Saints spotted scouting Florida State-Clemson matchup in CFB Week 4

The New Orleans Saints were spotted scouting Florida State’s matchup with Clemson this week, per ESPN’s Jordan Reid, who listed them among 11 NFL teams in attendance for Saturday’s game. They’ve spent a lot of time around both programs recently — Saints assistant general manager Jeff Ireland visited FSU’s campus two weeks ago, and of course the team’s top rookie draft pick Bryan Bresee comes from Clemson.

It makes sense to give the prospects in this game the attention they’re due. Florida State’s Jared Verse is one of the most exciting pass rushers eligible for the 2024 draft class, and...

Analyzing the Week 3 Saints injury report: Who's in, who's out, who has a chance?

We’ve got a long list of players to consider on the Week 3 New Orleans Saints injury report — but most of them are Green Bay Packers. The Packers pre-emptively ruled out two players and five more are questionable for Sunday’s matchup at Lambeau Field.

That’s not to say the Saints are at full health. But at least this week they have the benefits of a healthy roster on their side. Just one of their players has been ruled out for Sunday’s game while another is doubtful to play and two others are questionable. Let’s break it down:

Another week has passed, and it’s time to take a look at another prospect. Today, we’re going to take a look at Penn State’s Chop Robinson. I decided to look at Robinson this week because CBS analyst Chris Trapasso mocked the Penn State product to the New Orleans Saints at pick 20.

Bio of Chop Robinson

Demeioun “Chop” Robinson is from Gaithersburg, Maryland, and attended Quince Orchard High School. Robinson was a 247 Sports five-star recruit. He had offers from all over the country including Alabama, Clemson, Michigan, USC, and many other elite schools. Robinson turned down all of these...

In anticipation of the New Orleans Saints game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, here are some suggestions for benching a few players on your fantasy team. The Saints must make some roster changes after the win over the Carolina Panthers on primetime tv (Monday Night Football) due to injury. The Saints are backed into a corner with Kamara serving his last suspension game, Jamaal Williams (hamstring), and Kendre Miller (hamstring) still questionable at the time of this article. If your roster includes other options, I recommend considering them. In light of that, let’s look at who to...
