Saints LT Terron Armstead allowed just three sacks last season.

He was consistent in all areas, receiving positive grades from Pro Football Focus in both pass blocking and run blocking. The neck injury that bothered Armstead at the end of 2014 wasn't an issue at OTAs. New Orleans spent a first-round pick on Stanford tackle Andrus Peat but he isn't a threat to Armstead. The 23-year-old has two years remaining on his rookie contract.

Saints LT Terron Armstead will not require offseason neck surgery.

Armstead missed the final two games with a neck injury, but it was an issue for him all year. He should be ready for the start of OTAs if he avoids setbacks. Armstead was PFF's No. 17 left tackle this season.

Saints LT Terron Armstead left Week 15 against the Bears with a neck injury.

It's an aggravation of a previous injury for Armstead. He's been replaced by Bryce Harris on Drew Brees' blind side. Armstead has been the Saints' best lineman.

Saints LT Terron Armstead (neck) is listed as questionable for Week 15.

Armstead was held out on Thursday, but practiced the last two days. He'll be a game-time decision for Monday night. The Saints also listed OLB Junior Galette (knee) as questionable.

Saints LT Terron Armstead suffered a concussion in Sunday night's Week 4 game against the Cowboys.

Armstead was forced from the game after getting shaken up on the Saints' first series. He'll now need to go through the league's concussion protocol before returning to practice.

Second-year LT Terron Armstead has been standing out in Saints camp.

Armstead's starting job has been assured since May, but he's put on a show in camp. "You love everything you see," Drew Brees said. "Not only just his talent, but you see it in his eyes. ... What I see with him is intensity and confidence, and that is what you love to see in a left tackle, ready for any type of challenge." A strong 2014 will lock Armstead in on the blindside for years to come.

Terron Armstead is the only left tackle currently on the Saints' roster.

The Saints have all their chips in Armstead's basket. The second-year athletic freak took over on Drew Brees' blind side for the final four games of last season, getting embarrassed by Greg Hardy in his debut before rebounding with three straight solid outings. We're confident Armstead will be a plus pass protector and dominator in the screen game.

Saints LT Terron Armstead will undergo "minor" hand surgery Tuesday morning.

Armstead, the 75th pick in April's draft, appeared in four games as a rookie -- including the playoffs. He was dominated by Greg Hardy in his debut but stepped up and played well on Drew Brees' blind side in the postseason. Armstead should be ready for OTAs and has a firm grip on left-tackle duties for 2014.

Coach Sean Payton said Monday rookie Terron Armstead will "absolutely" remain the Saints' starting left tackle going forward.

Armstead got torn up by Greg Hardy early in Sunday's loss, but improved as the game went on and that's what the coaches want to see. Payton said he was "extremely encouraged" by Armstead's in-game improvement. The Saints play the Bucs in Week 17, and Payton says he'll approach it "like a playoff game."

Making his first NFL start in Sunday's Week 16 loss to Carolina, Saints third-round pick Terron Armstead coughed up three sacks and committed two false start penalties.

The Saints benched LT Charles Brown for Armstead, who was part of a line that served up six sacks of Drew Brees against the Panthers. Armstead had lots of trouble against Panthers RE Greg Hardy early, but settled in some later in the game. "I felt like he played great, and our line played great," Brees said. "Some of those sacks were on me, just getting the ball out."

The Saints will start third-round LT Terron Armstead in Sunday's Week 16 game at Carolina.

Coach Sean Payton is taking no prisoners as he tries to get the Saints' ship pointed back in the direction of the Super Bowl. He cut K Garrett Hartley on Tuesday and has now stripped Charles Brown of his starting job. A favorite of the draftnik community, Armstead is a freakish athlete who set the Combine record for offensive linemen by running a 4.71 forty. The question will be how ready he is after playing his college ball at Arkansas-Pine Bluff. We'll find out quickly as he makes his first NFL start against the Panthers' fearsome front seven. Ideally, the Saints will use Armstead's skill set to emphasize their screen game and get Pierre Thomas/Darren Sproles in space with a convoy.

Saints rookie LT Terron Armstead has leapfrogged Jason Smith on the depth chart, and is now running behind only Charles Brown.

Smith has been having a rough camp, so it's hardly a surprise. Armstead could easily jump Brown before camp is through, but the Saints are wisely taking things slowly with their raw third-round pick. Brown has made just eight career starts. Armstead is the more talented player.

Third-round pick Terron Armstead is considered the favorite for the Saints' left tackle job.

Armstead worked with the first-team offense throughout OTAs and will enter training camp as the leading candidate to protect Drew Brees' blindside. He should face little in the way competition from injury-prone Charles Brown and Jason Smith.

Saints rookie OT Terron Armstead has bulked up to 315 pounds after weighing in at 306 at February's Combine.

One of the questions about Armstead coming out was his "anchor," and added weight should help make him a more powerful player at the point of attack. Alex Marvez reports the rookie has run with the first-team throughout OTAs, and considers him the favorite to start over Charles Brown and Jason Smith.
