Cadet may face challenges from several players for the kick return job, including rookie Brandin Cooks.

Week 3: vs Minnesota Vikings

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. The Saints have lost their leading rusher, Mark Ingram, to a broken hand for a minimum of four weeks - so this week, we'll see Khiry Robinson (14/59/1 rushing to date) and Pierre Thomas (10/47/0 rushing with 9/74/0 receiving so far this year) in a two-headed committee of backs while Ingram is out. Travaris Cadet (one reception for five yards) will be the reserve option while Ingram is sidelined. The Vikings' rush D ranks 16th in the NFL after two contests, averaging 111 rushing yards allowed per game with one rushing score handed out to date. New England blasted them for 37/150/1 rushing last week, though, casting doubts on the defensive front entering Week 3. The Saints have a good matchup here despite the loss of Ingram last week.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs ATL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

Cadet started the game and was targeted on the Saints' first play from scrimmage. He released out of the backfield catching a swing pass that gained five yards. He had no rushes in the game.

2014 Week 2 vs CLE (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Cadet got 11 snaps and lined up all over the field but never touched the ball. The Saints were set to run a quick pitch to Cadet on a crucial 3rd-and-5 in the final minutes of the game but the play was quickly whistled dead as the Saints sideline called timeout a split second before the snap. It looked to be a smart timeout by Sean Payton as Cadet appeared to have very little running room after receiving the option-style pitch from Brees.
