In a blow to the Saints’ defense, head coach Dennis Allen announced during his Tuesday press conference that defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon tore his Achilles during the offseason. While Kpassagnon will miss the start of the season, Allen mentioned that there is a possibility he could return at some point later in the year.

Kpassagnon began his career as a second-round pick for the Chiefs in 2017 and joined the Saints as a free agent in 2021. Over the past three seasons with the Saints, he has accumulated 9.5 sacks and played a rotational role in all 17 games of the 2023 season. During this time, Kpassagnon was on the field for 37 percent of defensive snaps and 14 percent of special teams snaps.

Throughout his career, Kpassagnon has achieved 16.5 sacks, 22 tackles for loss, and 41 quarterback hits in a total of 101 games with 34 starts.
