Trevor Penning out ‘indefinitely’ with torn foot ligament

·1 min read

New Orleans Saints rookie offensive tackle Trevor Penning is out “indefinitely” with a torn ligament in his foot. The injury will require surgery.

Penning suffered the injury in the Saints’ preseason finale, a victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. He played ten snaps before suffering the injury, and required a cart to get to the locker room. Initially, it was reported that it was a case of turf toe, but according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, he has a torn ligament in his foot which will require surgery:

The Saints drafted Penning in the first round of the 2022 NFL draft, out of Northern Iowa. While in college, at the Senior Bowl, and in his first NFL training camp, Penning displayed a penchant for relying on a mean streak. However, as he found out earlier in the preseason, there is more to playing tackle in the NFL.

Saints fans now have to wait a little longer to see that mean streak in a regular-season game.
