Saints | No Further Word on Hodge Suspension

Mon, 10 Oct 2005 17:34:10 -0700

The New Orleans Saints have not yet received official word on a potential suspension for LB Sedrick Hodge. He remains with the team. The Saints are aware of the story about a suspension but they can't comment, deferring to the NFL, which has not commented. Neither the Saints nor Hodge's agent confirmed or denied the report. If Hodge is done for the year, the Saints will badly need LB James Allen to return from a hamstring injury. Allen began the season ahead of Hodge on the depth chart, but he missed most of training camp with a knee injury, and then later suffered the hamstring injury. Hodge was playing fairly well, so this would be a significant blow to a defense that already struggles against the run. Behind Allen, backup LB Terrence Melton doesn't have much experience.

Saints | Linebackers Will Platoon Week 4

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 08:00:33 -0700

Brian Allee-Walsh, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, reports New Orleans Saints head coach Jim Haslett has decided to rotate his linebackers in the team's Week 4 game. Haslett and Saints defensive coordinator Rick Venturi have concluded that six linebackers deserve playing time with the first unit. Strongside LB Sedrick Hodge, MLB Courtney Watson and weakside LB Colby Bockwoldt, although listed at the top of the team's depth chart at their positions, haven't necessarily distanced themselves from backup LBs James Allen, Ron McKinnon and T.J. Slaughter. "I don't like to platoon anybody, but I think all six linebackers warrant playing time,'' Haslett said. "So, if that's the way it is, that's the way it is.''
