Not even a game into the season, and the New Orleans Saints are already dealing with injury problems on their offensive line.


Zach Streif, longtime starting tackle, has suffered an injury in tonight's Monday night game against the Minnesota Vikings. He has been ruled OUT for the rest of the game.​

​​This isn't the first starting tackle the Saints have lost this year. Back in July, projected left tackle starter Terron Armstead went down with a shoulder injury. He is expected to miss at least half the season.

​​No word yet on the severity of Strief's injury, but he was able to walk off the field under his own power, which is cause for optimism.

​​This could spell disaster for the Saints and their aging quarterback if their top two tackles miss significant time--not to mention coach Sean Payton, who may be on the hot seat with another non-playoff season.
