Saints placed DT Nick Fairley (heart) on the reserve/NFI list.
Fairley is expected to miss all of 2017, and his career is in grave danger. Per the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the decision was made after consulting with "several doctors." Fairley has received at least three opinions on his heart condition. It's bitterly disappointing news after Fairley appeared in all 16 games for the first time in six NFL seasons last year, amassing career highs in tackles (43) and sacks (6.5). It's also a major blow to a Saints defense that remained woefully ineffective in 2016. Jun 26 - 4:37 PM
