Saints LG Andrus Peat (ankle) expects to be ready for training camp.
Peat suffered a broken fibula and high-ankle sprain in the Divisional Round. It's an injury that's proven to be a tricky rehab for many players. "It's getting better," Peat said. "I'm taking it day by day, and my goal is to be back for training camp, so that's kind of what they set for me and I feel like I'm on schedule." Peat's words, though encouraging, are not a guarantee. He could still need more time once late July rolls around. Jun 12 - 6:18 PM

Saints exercised LG Andrus Peat's fifth-year option for 2019.

Peat is three months removed from ankle surgery after going down in the first-round of the playoffs. He's coming off one of his better seasons as a run blocker, leading to Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara Pro Bowl appearances. Peat will make a base salary of $9.63 million next year. He's expected to be ready for training camp.

Saints placed LG Andrus Peat on injured reserve with a broken fibula and a high-ankle sprain, ending his season.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the ligament damage in Peat's ankle isn't as bad as originally feared, and he'll make a full recovery. Expect the Saints to take it easy on Peat in spring work, but he should be 100% well before training camp. Senio Kelemete will handle left guard the rest of the way.

Saints LG Andrus Peat exited the Wild Card game against the Panthers with a left leg injury.

Peat's left leg was pinned under a tackler on a second-quarter run. He was placed in an air cast on the field before being carted into the locker room. The Advocate's Nick Underhill reports Peat suffered a broken fibula, which will end his season. Senio Kelemete took over at left guard.
Jan 7 - 5:36 PM

Saints LG Andrus Peat is expecting "a breakout year."

After moving all around the formation in his first two years, Peat has settled in at left guard. He thinks the certainty will help him be more comfortable moving forward. If Max Unger (foot) is able to make it back for Week 1 and Terron Armstead stays healthy, the Saints should have a dominant line this season.

The Times-Picayune's Larry Holder believes Saints LG Andrus Peat is still Zach Strief's future replacement at right tackle.

Strief is fully expected to return in 2017, but he will turn 34 in September and has only two years left on his deal. With RG Jahri Evans also going on 34 and headed for free agency, the Saints need to be looking at long-term answers on the right side. LT Terron Armstead's health also has to be a concern after he managed just seven games in 2016, and C Max Unger will turn 31 in April. It is not a primary need, but the Saints have some work to do on the offensive line.

Saints coach Sean Payton said 2015 first-rounder Andrus Peat could be moved to left guard.

The Saints planned to use Peat on the right side -- either at guard or tackle -- this season, but he has struggled at both positions. "He hasn't played very well over on that right side, so we've got to keep looking and pay close attention to it," Payton said. "I know what he can do well, and we've got to find a way to be at a high enough level inside. And I think we can get that done." The offensive line has struggled mightily in the preseason, and the guard spots are a big reason why. The Saints could look to add a veteran like newly-released OG Geoff Schwartz in the next couple days.

Saints coach Sean Payton called out the offensive line after the third preseason game Friday night.

"The one thing that’s concerning and troubling right now is ... our ability to protect," Payton said. "So we’ve got to keep looking at the best lineup, the best way for us to give us a chance offensively." The Saints have struggled both to protect Drew Brees and create holes in the running game all preseason. Guard remains the primary concern, with sophomore Andrus Peat struggling on the right side and neither Tim Lelito nor Senio Kelemete distinguishing themselves on the left. With the defense still terrible, the Saints need the offense hitting on all cylinders to find any success this season.

Sat, Aug 27, 2016 08:35:00 AM believes Andrus Peat is securing right guard duties.

In-house reporter Sean Kelley believes it "seems to become more solid by the day." All of Peat's reps came at right guard on the first day of minicamp. It's been the most logical landing spot for the 2015 first-rounder all along.

2015 first-rounder Andrus Peat is working as the first-team right guard at Saints OTAs.

Coach Sean Payton said last month the team "certainly" sees Peat as a starter no matter if it is at guard or tackle. With Terron Armstead and Zach Strief locked in at left and right tackle respectively, Peat's best shot at that starting spot is at guard. The Saints lined up with Armstead at left tackle, Tim Lelito at left guard, Max Unger at center, Peat at right guard, and Strief at right tackle on Thursday.

Coach Sean Payton said the Saints "certainly" see OL Andrus Peat starting this season.

"Whether it’s at right guard or right tackle, we’ve got some time and some flexibility with regards to that," Payton continued. The No. 13 overall pick last year, Peat failed to earn a starting job out of camp and played 426 mostly ineffective snaps. Peat still is not locked into the starting lineup entering his second year, but the Saints are giving him first-team reps at guard. With Terron Armstead and Zach Strief locked in at tackle, Peat's only real path to a starting job is at guard.

Saints OL Andrus Peat has been taking the first-team reps at right guard in OTAs.

Peat has been running with the second team at right tackle. Coach Sean Payton has proclaimed Peat will start in 2016, but it's beginning to look like it will be on the interior. Peat had a lost rookie year, struggling with his conditioning before being inconsistent at tackle.
Thu, May 26, 2016 01:55:00 PM

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett said the team will consider moving OT Andrus Peat to guard full-time in 2016.

While Triplett believes Peat will compete with Zach Strief for the starting right tackle job, the team's more pressing need might be at guard. The Saints released long-time right guard Jahri Evans prior to the start of free agency and didn't upgrade during the offseason. Senio Kelemete and Landon Turner figure to get first crack at replacing Evans though Peat will also be in the mix.

Saints rookie OL Andrus Peat admitted his conditioning was problematic early in his first NFL season.

This contributed to Peat not becoming a starter until Week 5. As the No. 13 overall pick, Peat was a slow-developing rookie who struggled in pass protection but excelled as a run blocker once he finally got on the field. On the bright side, Peat is a talented 22-year-old who ultimately saw action at three positions on the line (RT, LT, LG) and didn't embarrass himself as a largely full-time player down the stretch, before missing Week 17 with a knee injury. Peat should start in 2016.

Saints rookie Andrus Peat will start at left guard Sunday.

Peat has three starts at tackle this year, but this will be his first game inside. He can’t be worse than what the Saints were getting from Tim Lelito. Peat should be a pass-blocking upgrade.
