Butler tore his ACL in June of 2013, missing the entire 2013 season. He should be ready to go for the 2014 training camp after ~13 months of recuperation and rehabilitation.

Summary

Missing the entire 2013 season due to a torn ACL, Victor Butler's return to the Saints line-up will give their pass rush a boost and take some of the pressure off Junior Galette, who enjoyed a breakout season last year in the Big Easy. Butler, who has yet to play a regular season snap for the Saints, is in a contract year and will be motivated to show the team's faith in him was well-founded. The preseason and training camp reports will glean some more information on Butler's status, but over a year after his ACL surgery he should be ready to contribute. He has excellent 'swing for the fences' upside in leagues where scoring is skewed towards sacks and hits. (May 13)
