Injury Update For New Orleans Saints' DT Sheldon Rankins

A bad start has only gotten worse for the New Orleans Saints in this NFC Divisional Round Game, particularly for star defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins.

In the first quarter, Rankins went down with an injury and had to come off the field.

Since then, NFL Network reporter Mike Garafolo revealed that Rankins is believed to have torn his Achilles on the play in the question.

As of writing, the Saints are trying to dig themselves out of a 14-point hole against the Philadelphia Eagles but may have to do without one of their best defensive linemen.

Rankins had a career-year in 2018 with 8.0 sacks, 40 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, and 15 quarterback hits.

For his career, Rankins has 14.0 sacks, 86 tackles, three forced fumbles, and 30 quarterback hits.

He was the No. 12 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft out of Louisville.

The game is being played on FOX.
