Saints | Sheldon Rankins to IR (Wed Jan 16, 12:28 AM) - New Orleans Saints DT Sheldon Rankins (Achilles') was placed on the Reserve/Injured list on Tuesday, Jan. 15.

Our View: A terrible injury and bad timing for Rankins. This late in the season, Rankins is no lock to begin the 2019 regular season healthy. If there are any delays in his recovery, Rankins might have to begin the 2019 season on the PUP list. We'll know more about his progress as the year goes on.

Saints | Sheldon Rankins suffers torn Achilles' (Mon Jan 14, 01:44 PM) - Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints DT Sheldon Rankins (Achilles') was diagnosed with a torn Achilles' tendon Monday, Jan. 14. He is done for the season and expected to have surgery later in the week.

Our View: A first-round pick out of Louisville in the 2016 NFL draft, Rankins was a big presence in the middle of the Saints defensive line. It's a blow to the team as they continue to march forward in the playoffs. Rankins will undergo surgery then begin the long road to recovery. This Achilles' injury puts his availability for the start of the 2019 regular season in question.
