Damian Swann expected to miss Saints game versus Titans, per report


According ESPN NFL insider Adam Caplan, New Orleans Saints cornerback Damian Swann is not expected to play Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.

Swann, who suffered a Week 5 concussion against the Philadelphia Eagles and missed two games, is back on protocol after his day ended early again on Sunday versus the New York Giants.

Concussions, obviously, have been a growing concern in the NFL, so back-to-back head injuries for Damian Swann is not a good look.  Until the setback in Philly, the Saints’ rookie cornerback has been a pleasant surprise in 2015.

New Orleans traded back up into the fifth round to draft him out of the University of Georgia.  With an early injury to Keenan Lewis, who’s been on a pitch count and sidelined several games, Damian Swann has filled in nicely alongside Delvin Breaux and the struggling Brandon Browner.

We’ll know more about the severity of the situation when the Saints begin issuing out their injury reports ahead of Sunday’s meeting with the Titans.  Luckily, Tennessee is not known to be an NFL powerhouse on the offensive side of the ball.  However, New Orleans has been known to give up big games to opposing rookie quarterbacks.  Marcus Mariota, who has been battling a knee injury, could return to action this Sunday.
