  • Saints' Pete Werner: Impressive showing in Year 2

    Werner posted 80 tackles (56 solo), three passes defended and two forced fumbles while playing 12 of 17 games in the 2022 season.

    Werner posted career highs in tackles and passes defended despite playing three fewer games than he did during his 2021 rookie season. The second-round pick stepped up into a significantly larger role alongside veteran linebacker Demario Davis to begin the 2022 campaign, as he logged double-digit tackles in three of the first eight games. Werner then sustained an ankle injury Week 9 and missed some time before returning for three of the final four regular-season games, though he played markedly fewer defensive snaps down the stretch. Nevertheless, he still finished third on the team in tackles this season and should be poised for another prominent role in 2023.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Available for Week 17

    Werner (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles, per the team's official site.

    After practicing on a limited basis in each session earlier this week, Werner will now avoid missing a second straight contest as a result of a hamstring injury. The second-year pro figures to capture the first takeaway of his NFL career this weekend versus Philadelphia.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Questionable against Eagles

    Werner (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

    Werner sat out last week against the Browns due to a hamstring injury and was limited during each of the Saints' practice sessions ahead of their Week 17 matchup against the Eagles. If he's unavailable once again, Kaden Elliss will likely continue to see increased playing time.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Ruled out again Week 16

    Werner (hamstring) will not play in Saturday's game against the Browns, Terrin Waack of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Werner missed four games in a row after suffering an ankle injury during New Orleans' Week 9 loss to the Ravens. While he finally returned Week 15 against Atlanta, the second-year linebacker picked up a new hamstring issue that kept him sidelined for all three practices ahead of Saturday's contest, so he'll now look to work his way back ahead of the Saints' next game against Philadelphia on Sunday, Jan. 1. With Werner out again, expect Kaden Elliss, who logged 40 tackles while filling in during Werner's initial four-game absence, to step back into a near-every down role alongside Demario Davis on Saturday.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Noted as non-participant

    Werner (hamstring) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's practice estimate, per the team's official site.

    Werner returned from a four-game absence Sunday as a result of an ankle issue, but he's since been listed on the Saints' practice report as a non-participant during Tuesday's walk-through due to a new hamstring injury he presumably picked up this past weekend against the Falcons. If the second-year pro is ultimately unable to give it a go Saturday against the Browns, then New Orleans could revert back to rotating between more defensive linemen to fill Werner's vacated spot.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Cleared for Week 15

    Werner (ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup against Atlanta, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Werner, who's missed four straight contests due to an ankle injury, was listed as questionable but will ultimately suit up Sunday. Before his injury, Werner totaled 71 tackles, three pass defenses and two forced fumbles while playing at least 80 percent of the defensive snaps in each of the Saints' first eight games. The second-year linebacker's availability will likely mean less snaps for Kaden Elliss, but Werner may be limited during his return from a lengthy absence.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Iffy for Week 15

    Werner (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against Atlanta, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Werner has missed four consecutive contests due to an ankle injury and is in jeopardy of missing a fifth after logging three straight limited practices following the team's Week 14 bye. Kaden Elliss has stepped up as a starter in Werner's absence, totaling 40 tackles, 2.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one pass defense over the Saints' past four games.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Logs limited practice Wednesday

    Werner (ankle) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game versus Atlanta, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

    Werner has sat out New Orleans' last four games, and he still apparently isn't fully healthy coming off of a Week 14 bye. If the 2021 second-rounder is again out for Week 15, Kaden Elliss would probably continue to see an expanded role at linebacker.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Sitting Monday

    Werner (ankle) is inactive Monday against the Buccaneers.

    Werner will be forced to watch from the sideline again, as he has since getting injured Week 9 against the Ravens. His absence will certainly leave a big void in the Saints' linebacker corps, and Zack Baun should continue to see increased opportunity in Werner's absence.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Considered questionable

    Werner (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game against the Buccaneers.

    Werner has missed each of the Saints' last two games, but he managed a pair of limited practices ahead of Monday's game against the Buccaneers. He could be set for a return as a result, which would provide a boost to the defense. Through nine games this season, Werner has recorded 74 total tackles with two forced fumbles.
