Report: Saints’ Kenny Vaccaro out for season with broken ankle

The New Orleans Saints have suffered a major injury to their revived defense, according to an NFL Network report.

Safety Kenny Vaccaro, a leading candidate for Defensive Rookie of the Year, appears to have suffered a broken ankle in their game against the Carolina Panthers.

That would be a huge loss for a Saints defense that needs all the help it can get.
