NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The Saints defense survived giving up 31 points to Washington Sunday but did suffer a loss in the form of Alex Okafor, whose season will reportedly be over due to a torn Achilles, suffered during the team's eighth straight win.

In his first season in New Orleans, the defensive lineman has amassed 4.5 sacks, forced 2 fumbles and tallied 45 tackles. He signed with the team on a one-year deal so he will enter free agency in March while still recovering from his injury.

    SEC Media Days means a lot of football talk, but nothing in terms of actual football on the field. The Tigers have seen where they stand on paper, but they're anxious to prove everyone wrong once the season starts.
