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.
#Saints S Kenny Vaccaro is out of the game with what I'm told is a fractured ankle. Ends the season for do-everything DROY candidate.

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