Saints | Two linemen injured against Atlanta

Sun, 08 Sep 2013 23:34:13 -0700

New Orleans Saints DL Brodrick Bunkley (leg) and Tyrunn Walker (leg) left New Orleans' regular-season opener Sunday, Sept. 8, against the Atlanta Falcons with leg injuries. Team officials listed both as questionable to return at the time. Bunkley injured his right leg when he appeared to be tangled up on a short running play. Shortly before the half ended, Walker got caught in a pile and appeared to hurt his left knee as teammate Junior Galette sacked Falcons QB Matt Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: In leagues with individual defensive players, you may want to consider Akiem Hicks, Tom Johnson or John Jenkins in that order. These three figure to benefit if these injuries cost Bunkley or Walker a chunk of playing time.
