The Saints have placed linebacker Alex Anzalone on injured reserve. Anzalone injured his shoulder against the Dolphins. The third round pick from Florida was the team's starting weakside linebacker in all four games. 

He had 16 tackles and a sack on the season. Anzalone battled shoulder injuries throughout his career at Florida which was part of the reason why he slipped to the third round. There's no word on if he is a short-term injured reserve candidate that could return later in the season. The Saints have two available, one will be used on cornerback Delvin Breaux. Craig Robertson will likely take over at weakside linebacker with Anzalone out. The team recently signed linebacker Gabe Martin as well.

    The Pelicans picked up Alvin Gentry's option to return for the 2018-19 season, and we shouldn't be surprised if there's an extension in the works as well.
