Armstead is dealing with an undisclosed soft-tissue injury. The issue is not believed to be serious, but it is possible he will miss the first couple weeks of camp. One of the best blindside protectors in the league, Armstead was rewarded with a five-year, $64.5-million extension in May.

Saints signed LT Terron Armstead to a five-year, $64.5 million extension through 2021.

He gets $25 million fully guaranteed at signing. The 2013 third-rounder was owed $705,000 in the final year of his rookie contract. Locking up Armstead became an offseason priority for the Saints after he emerged as one of the league's best tackles last season. Still only 25 (in July), Armstead graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 overall tackle in 2015.
May 3 - 3:17 PM

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett believes signing LT Terron Armstead to an extension will be a "top priority" for New Orleans this year.

Armstead is entering the final year of his rookie deal and coming off a breakout season. The former third-round pick out of Arkansas-Pine Bluff started 13-of-16 games and graded out as PFF's No. 3 left tackle. The highly-athletic Armstead received high marks for both his pass protection and run blocking. He's only 24 and could command a Tyron Smith-type contract.

Saints LT Terron Armstead (knee) is listed as doubtful for Week 6.

Armstead will miss his second straight game, leaving rookie Andrus Peat to protect Drew Brees' blindside. It would be a bigger concern if the Falcons had a pass rush. The Saints allowed five sacks to the Eagles last week.
Wed, Oct 14, 2015 06:16:00 PM

Saints LT Terron Armstead (knee) practiced on Tuesday.

Armstead missed Sunday's loss to the Eagles, but at least has a shot at suiting up against the Falcons on Thursday. Ultimately, the Saints may opt to give their blindside pillar another 10 days of rest.

Sun, Oct 11, 2015 11:31:00 AM

Saints LT Terron Armstead (knee) has been ruled out for Week 5.

Fri, Oct 9, 2015 05:10:00 PM

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett said LT Terron Armstead "has been arguably the most impressive player in Saints camp."

Armstead allowed just three sacks last season and finished as Pro Football Focus' 14th best left tackle. Entering his third year in the league, Armstead looks poised to take another step forward. With Max Unger at the pivot, the Saints' offensive line projects to be an improved unit this season.
Sat, Aug 22, 2015 09:32:00 AM

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.
Wed, Jul 8, 2015 08:59:00 AM

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.
