Inactive status for Saints CB Vaccaro a head-scratcher


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) The inclusion of safety Kenny Vaccaro on the inactive list for the Saints on Sunday is a surprise, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. He practiced fully all week despite what has reportedly been a nagging quad injury.

NFL Network had claimed before the game two weeks ago against Chicago that Vaccaro was destined to be benched, but he played in that game as a nickel back. He started in Week 16.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Tackle Terron Armstead is the lone injured player on the inactive list released by the Saints for their Week 17 game against Tampa Bay. He is dealing with a neck issue that prevented him from practicing all week.

"I want him back," Lewis told The Times Picayune. "I'm going to ride with him. He's a great coordinator. You just can't blame him when things go wrong. We're the ones out there playing." 

Vaccarro also said "Rob will be here."

The Saints are currently 29th in passing yards allowed at 261.5 per game and 29th in rushing yards allowed per game at 129.5 per game. As a team, they are 31st in overall defense.


Head coach mum on Saints' Kenny Vaccaro's role


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) Saints head coach Sean Payton did not elaborate on safety Kenny Vaccaro's role on Thursday.

It was reported that Vaccaro would be benched on Tuesday, but Payton wouldn't completely confirm the news. "He's going to play a ton for us," Payton said. "The role he plays -- I'll leave it at that." Vaccaro seemed to confirm that his role was about to change, though didn't get into specifics. He said the whole situation has made him "put reset on everything."

Vaccaro admitted he was still getting used to a new position, and that it would take time for him to adjust. "Like I tell people this countless times, I've never been back there," Vaccaro said. Vaccaro was used mostly in nickel formations last season, but has transitioned to safety this year.
