Saints send backup guard Forrest Lamp to I.R., re-sign kicker John Parker Romo

Ahead of the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers preseason game the Saints made a couple of roster moves. Friday’s update to the daily NFL transactions wire reported that New Orleans placed offensive lineman Forrest Lamp on injured reserve, brought kicker John Park Romo back, and had offensive lineman Sage Doxtater revert to injured reserve after clearing waivers.

Lamp was one of the Saints few options on the line that had capabilities at center behind Erik McCoy and Nick Martin, though he’s mostly lined up at left guard behind Andrus Peat. Doxtater left the field during Wednesday’s joint practices with the Packers, which was a concerning day for the New Orleans offensive line. On a day where Ryan Ramczyk and Landon Young were already not participating, the team saw rookie Trevor Penning, veteran James Hurst, and Doxtator leave the field. Penning was able to return.

The Saints have brought in Derrick Kelly, who has been on and off with the Saints in recent seasons, to help out on with numbers on the line. Meanwhile, the return of Romo helps to keep starting kicker Wil Lutz fresh throughout camp. Lutz is currently 34-of-35 in camp with his only miss being a 57-yard field goal which he retried unofficially and nailed. Keeping Lutz fresh and healthy this offseason could be the difference between wins and losses in 2022.
