NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans Saints starting left guard Andrus Peat has had surgery to repair a broken arm and is expected to be sidelined about six weeks, said a person familiar with the situation.

The person spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the extent of Peat’s injury and his surgery has not been announced. ESPN first reported details of the surgery.

The 2018 Pro Bowl selection was injured during the first half of Sunday’s 26-9 loss to Atlanta.

Peat was New Orleans’ first-round draft choice in 2015 and has started 59 of the 64 career games he’s played.

Although Saints players did not indicate whether they’d been briefed on the specifics of Peat’s injury or his estimated absence, they addressed the likelihood of having to play multiple games without him after he’d missed Wednesday’s practice.

“It’s a loss for us, for sure. Andrus is playing well, he has a lot of experience,” Saints left tackle Terron Armstead said.
