NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Coming off a rookie season that saw Hau'Oli Kikaha log four sacks and force four fumbles, the pass rusher has been lost for the 2016 campaign due to a torn ACL, according to FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo.

Kikaha previously tore his ACL in 2011 as a freshman at the University of Washington and suffered the same injury leading up to his sophomore season in 2012. Those injuries occurred on his left knee.

It is unclear which knee incurred the damage in the third and final week of Saints Organized Team Activities. The team will conduct a minicamp next week before breaking for the summer.

    Take One: Taysom Hill progressing In our first chance to see Taysom Hill operating as a quarterback, I thought Hill looked good. I see why Sean Payton likes him. He seems to have a good grasp of where to go with the football. When he throws it, he has nice zip and accuracy. His athleticism is obvious too when he moves around. His best pass came on a nine route to Eldridge Massington. He also connected to an open receiver on a post route. Let’s not get too...
