  • Saints' Pete Werner: Logs solid 2023 campaign

    Werner finished the 2023 season with 93 tackles and one interception across 16 appearances.

    Werner logged career highs across the board, including 16 starts at inside linebacker alongside 12-year veteran Demario Davis. The 2021 second-round pick also played 306 more defensive snaps than last season, though he only finished with 13 more tackles. With Davis currently set to become a free agent this offseason, it's possible that Werner could see his production rise once again entering the final season of his four-year, $5.68 million contract.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Leads Saints in tackles Sunday

    Werner finished Sunday's 23-13 win over the Buccaneers with nine tackles (eight solo).

    Werner had his most productive tackling output since Week 3 against the Packers. The 2021 second-round pick out of Ohio State has 89 tackles over 15 games this season, which is second on the team behind Demario Davis.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Set to return Week 14

    Werner (oblique) is active for Sunday's contest against Carolina.

    Werner missed last Sunday's game versus Detroit due to an oblique injury, but his absence will last only one week as he's set to return to face the Panthers. The third-year linebacker has played a near every-down role for the Saints when healthy, accumulating 67 tackles (43 solo), including half a sack, along with an interception on the season. Nephi Sewell will presumably have a minimal role on defense again after starting last week in Werner's stead.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Chance to return Week 14

    Werner (oblique) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Panthers, Matthew Paras of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Werner missed his first game of the season in Week 13, and after a week of limited practice sessions, he has a chance to suit up Sunday. If the 25-year-old were to miss his second consecutive game, Zack Baun would likely assume starting inside linebacker duties alongside Demario Davis.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Returns to practice Wednesday

    Werner (oblique) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, John Hendrix of SI.com reports.

    Werner missed his first game of the season in Week 13 against the Lions. His return to practice is a sign that he is trending in the right direction for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Werner has 43 tackles (24 solo), including 0.5 sacks, one interception and one fumble recovery in 11 games this year.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Won't suit up vs. Lions

    Werner (oblique) is listed as out for Sunday's game versus the Lions, Matthew Paras of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Werner will miss his first game of the season in Week 13 as he deals with an oblique injury. In his stead, Zack Baun will probably see an increased snap count at linebacker next to Demario Davis.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Misses another practice

    Werner (oblique) did not practice Thursday, Brooke Kirchhofer of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Werner has now logged consecutive DNPs after he played a typical workload in Week 12 against the Falcons, so it's hard to say how serious the injury may be. His practice level Friday will likely give more clarity on his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Lions.

  • Saints' Pete Werner: Misses practice Wednesday

    Werner (oblique) didn't practice Wednesday, Matthew Paras of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Werner popped up on New Orleans' injury report Wednesday, casting doubt on his status for Sunday's matchup with Detroit. If the 2021 second-round pick ends up being unable to play, Nephi Sewell should start in his place.

    Werner posted eight tackles (seven solo) against the Falcons in Sunday's loss.

    Werner tied for second on the Saints in stops in the contest, logging his highest tackle total since Week 4 against Tampa Bay. The 2021 second-round draft pick has been a near every-down presence on the field for New Orleans throughout the campaign, racking up 67 tackles (43 solo), including a half-sack, and picking off one pass over 11 contests.
