Saints RT Strief sustains MCL sprain vs. Vikings

Sports Xchange - Wednesday 13th September, 2017

New Orleans right tackle Zach Strief is expected to be sidelined a few weeks after sustaining an MCL sprain in his left knee during Monday's 29-19 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, according to multiple reports.

An MCL sprain typically is a four-week injury, which means Strief could be sidelined through the team's Week 5 bye.

Backup Senio Kelemete replaced Strief on Monday for New Orleans, which struggled to ignite its offense versus Minnesota. The 33-year-old Strief had missed just two games since 2013.

Losing Strief for an extended amount of time is a major concern to a Saints' line that is already without left tackle Terron Armstead, who is recovering from shoulder surgery. Rookie Ryan Ramczyk started at left tackle versus the Vikings and gave up a sack Monday night.
