  • Saints' Payton Turner: Avoids injury report

    Turner (ankle) wasn't listed on the Saints' practice report Tuesday.

    Turner has missed each of New Orleans' previous three games as a result of an ankle injury, but his absence from Tuesday's practice estimate implies that the 23-year-old should be ready to go this weekend against the Browns. He'll likely handle a rotational role alongside Carl Granderson and Tanoh Kpassagnon behind starters Cameron Jordan and Marcus Davenport.

  • Saints' Payton Turner: Inactive again

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

  • Saints' Payton Turner: Deemed questionable for Sunday

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

    Turner logged a full practice Friday after being limited during Wednesday's and Thursday's sessions due to an ankle injury that's already cost him back-to-back contests. It's certainly encouraging to see the second-year defensive end back at practice, but his questionable designation suggests he'll be limited if he's ultimately deemed available for Week 15. Carl Granderson figures to remain the primary beneficiary if Turner is ruled out for a third consecutive contest.

  • Saints' Payton Turner: Not playing at Tampa Bay

    Turner (ankle) is listed as out for Monday's game at the Buccaneers, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

    Turner will miss his second consecutive game with an ankle injury he sustained in Week 11 versus the Rams. In the place of the 2021 first-rounder, Carl Granderson should continue to see increased reps on the edge.

  • Saints' Payton Turner: Won't face 49ers

    Turner (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Turner suffered a high-ankle sprain in a Week 11 matchup against the Rams and was labeled week-to-week. He didn't practice in any capacity leading up to Sunday's game against the 49ers and has unsurprisingly been ruled out. He's played a fairly significant role along the Saints' defensive line this season, logging 16 total tackles and two sacks across seven games.

  • Saints' Payton Turner: Dealing with ankle sprain

    The Saints are labeling Turner as week-to-week after he was diagnosed Monday with a low-ankle sprain, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Though the injury Turner suffered in Sunday's win over the Rams isn't as severe as initially thought, he'll still face an uphill battle to make it back for a Week 12 matchup with the 49ers. The 2021 first-round draft pick has thrived in a rotational role at defensive end the past four weeks, racking up 13 tackles and two sacks over that span.

  • Saints' Payton Turner: X-rays negative, MRI upcoming

    Turner's X-rays on his injured ankle came back negative, and he's now slated to undergo an MRI on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Turner departed during the first half of Sunday's 27-20 win over the Rams with an ankle injury, and he ultimately failed to return for the remainder of the afternoon. While X-rays revealed no fractures, the hope now is that the 23-year-old is just dealing with an ankle sprain, per Rapoport. If Turner misses any time, Carl Granderson would be slated for additional defensive end reps behind starter Marcus Davenport, who's missed both of the Saints' last two games due to a calf issue.

  • Saints' Payton Turner: Downgraded to out

    Turner (ankle) will not return to Sunday's matchup against the Rams, Terrin Waack of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Turner recorded one tackle for loss before exiting during the first half of Sunday's contest. While the nature and severity of this ankle issue are still unknown, the 23-year-old will have a full week to recover before the Saints' next game Sunday, Nov. 27 against the 49ers.

  • Saints' Payton Turner: Exits with ankle injury

    Turner (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Rams, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.

    The 2021 first-round pick has recorded 12 tackles and two sacks since returning from a chest injury Week 8, and he was likely set to step up into a bigger role with starting defensive ends Cameron Jordan (eye) and Marcus Davenport (calf) both ruled inactive Sunday. With Turner now out for the time being, expect Carl Granderson, Tanoh Kpassagnon and Jabari Zuniga to play prominent roles against the Rams' depleted offensive line.

  • Saints' Payton Turner: Full go at practice Wednesday

    Turner (chest) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

    Turner missed three straight games due to a chest injury, but it appears he's on track to return in Week 8. If available, the second year defensive end figures to garner a solid rotational role along New Orleans' defensive line.
