Saints LG Andrus Peat (quad) remained limited at Wednesday's practice.

Sep 7 - 3:24 PM

Saints LG Andrus Peat (quad) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

Peat was spotted during the open portion of Thursday's practice, though it's unclear if he was able to take part in team drills. When healthy, he'll be tasked with opening up holes for lead back Alvin Kamara.
Sep 6 - 3:25 PM

Saints LG Andrus Peat (quad) did not practice on Wednesday.

He was the only Saint absent from Wednesday's practice. Peat was mostly ineffective last year, earning PFF's No. 50 grade out of 80 qualifiers at guard. Josh LeRibeus would be next up at left guard for New Orleans.

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.
Apr 13 - 6:42 PM

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.
Jan 10 - 2:41 PM

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.
Thu, Jun 15, 2017 12:37:00 PM

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.
