So far for Kendre Miller, it has been a period of fits and starts as a New Orleans Saint.

The euphoria over being drafted in the third round this year was calmed by him missing offseason workouts due to a knee injury, and a promising showing in training camp and in the preseason game against the Chargers was shaded by a hamstring injury that sidelined him for the first two regular-season games.

But the rookie running back is set to make his NFL debut Sunday, when the Saints (2-0) face the Packers (1-1) at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wis.

"I'm very excited, just getting back into football shape and working so hard to get back," Miller said. "It just feels good to be back.

"You know, it's been hard, most definitely, because preseason I had a little knee issue and then right when we were about to get started for real, I had the hamstring. But it feels good to be back." ...

The New Orleans Saints face off against the Green Bay Packers this Sunday. The Packers and Saints don’t share a division, but they played each other frequently as of late. They skipped last season, but played the two previous seasons. When looking at the star offensive skill players, Chris Olave, Rashid Shaheed and Kendre Miller are entering their first game versus the Packers.

There is a more veteran bunch on the defense. Many of the Saints starting defenders have played the Packers before. Here is how New Orleans Saints star players have fared in previous games against the Green Bay...

Saints offense can't settle for more kicks and outscore the Packers

The New Orleans Saints must produce consistent offense to defeat the Green Bay Packers. The Saints defense has been elite this year, and they have needed to be. The offense hasn’t given them much room for error. The defense is facing the Packers and their second ranked scoring offense this week. The Saints offense can’t leave them the same margin of error. As good as the defense is, near perfection can’t be expected from them every game.

New Orleans has mustered six points in the first half of each game. The team has been able to make adjustments and pull out big plays at important times...

Saints place RB Jamaal Williams on IR

The New Orleans Saints have placed RB Jamaal Williams on injured reserve due to a hamstring injury he suffered in last week’s game against the Carolina Panthers.

This means that Willams will miss at least the next four games. The earliest that he will be eligible to return will be in Week 7, when the Saints will face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, October 19th. This move is not that surprising because Saints head coach Dennis Allen said at Tuesday’s press conference that Williams could be out some time because of the injury. So, it makes sense to place Williams on IR while he is...

We’re rapidly closing in on the New Orleans Saints’ Week 3 road game with the Green Bay Packers, and the Saints have announced a series of last-minute roster moves to help prepare for this matchup.

Some of the moves were made in response to injuries, others were procedural. Here’s what you need to know about each of them:

Saints elevate two experienced defensive backs from their practice squad

The New Orleans Saints elevated two experienced defensive backs from their practice squad for Sunday’s game with the Green Bay Packers, per the daily NFL transactions wire. And one of them signed with the team just three days ago: cornerback Cameron Dantzler.

It makes sense to bring up more defensive backs with two starters down this week — cornerback Paulson Adebo won’t play after injuring his hamstring in practice Friday, while free safety Marcus Maye has been suspended the next three games.

Dantzler was given the nod ahead of two younger teammates who were also on the practice squad...

Saints' 2024 to-do list looking very manageable after Cesar Ruiz, Carl Granderson extensions

The New Orleans Saints’ 2024 to-do list is looking very manageable after extensions with Cesar Ruiz and Carl Granderson took two of their most important free agents off the board. With those two young players signed for the foreseeable future (along with team captain Cameron Jordan), team decision-makers will be able to focus on upgrading the roster rather than retaining talent.

But it all hinges on Derek Carr. The veteran quarterback has shown some good things (and some vulnerabilities) through his first couple of starts. Everything about the plan general manager Mickey Loomis and his...

Saints place veteran RB Jamaal Williams on injured reserve

It’s going to be a while before we see the New Orleans Saints running backs room at full strength. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Saints are putting Jamaal Williams on injured reserve after his recent hamstring injury, sidelining him for at least the next four games. The soonest he could return would be Week 7’s prime-time game with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 19.

That’s a shame. Williams didn’t have much to work with behind a flimsy Saints offensive line to start the season. And he never did get to form a tandem with rookie draft pick Kendre Miller, who missed the first two...

This isn’t great. The New Orleans Saints downgraded starting cornerback Paulson Adebo (hamstring) and veteran tight end Foster Moreau (ankle) on Saturday, meaning neither of them will play against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Adebo was previously listed as questionable on the injury report after he hurt his hamstring at practice on Friday; Moreau was doubtful to play, only practicing on a limited basis Thursday and otherwise being inactive.

Expect veteran backup Isaac Yiadom to fill in for Adebo opposite Marshon Lattimore in Green Bay. The Saints want to keep second-year pro Alontae...
