Saints DE Tanoh Kpassagnon sidelined indefinitely with torn Achilles, maybe for 2024.

The New Orleans Saints will be without Tanoh Kpassagnon, a defensive end, for at least the beginning of the upcoming season, which will take place in the fall.  

Kpassagnon suffered a tear in his Achilles tendon while participating in a drill at the Saints' indoor practice facility earlier this spring, according to the head coach of the Saints, Dennis Allen, who verified the news on Tuesday  

Despite the fact that the specifics of that incident are unknown, Kpassagnon will not be able to participate in training camp and will be sidelined for at least the beginning of the season.  

Even though it can take a full year to recover from an Achilles injury, Allen has not yet determined that Kpassagnon will be unable to play for the entirety of the 2024 season.  

During the next fall season, Kpassagnon was scheduled to begin his fourth season with the Saints. The Kansas City Chiefs made the initial selection of the former player, who is now 29 years old, in the second round of the draft in 2017. He was a member of the team for the first four seasons of his career, and by the fourth season, he had worked his way into the starting lineup.  

Kpassagnon has been an essential component of the Saints' defensive front throughout the course of the past few years. Over the course of the previous season, he recorded a total of 19 tackles and 3.5 sacks, including a stellar performance against the New York Giants in which he sacked quarterback Tommy DeVito three times  

Over the course of his seven seasons in the NFL, Kpassagnon has accumulated a total of 16.5 sacks, 9.5 of which have been recorded in New Orleans.  

As of right now, Kpassagnon is the most recent defensive end for the Saints to be dealing with a severe injury during training camp. Chase Young, who inked a one-year, $13 million deal with the club earlier this year, is recovering from a neck treatment, and Cameron Jordan experienced surgery on his ankle. Both of these procedures were performed earlier this year.
