New Orleans Saints have 2 players on injured reserve ahead of 2022 season
Penning, the Saints' No. 11 overall pick in this year's draft,
suffered a toe injury during the team's presidential finale last weekend.
The first-round pick will reportedly require surgery
and is out indefinitely with a "significant" injury.
Despite his injury to the lower part of his leg during the Saints' preseason finale,
Roach's injury appears to be less serious. According to team insider
Nick Underhill, the third-year DT is expected to adapt soon.
Without these two players, the Saints will begin their 2022 regular season
with a Week 1 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons on September 11.
