Bad news for our New Orleans Saints as Pro Football Talk is reporting that linebacker Will Smith is out for the season after sustaining a knee injury in yesterday's preseason game against the Houston Texans.

The precise injury is unclear at this time, but for Saints fans, it really doesn't matter at this point.

This will mark the second linebacker that the Saints lose for the season. During the summer, newly-signed Victor Butler tore his ACL in his knee.

Things just got a whole lot more uncertain for a defense that is trying to rebuild under new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. No doubt the Saints will be watching the waiver wire or possibly looking to pull the trigger on a trade for help on defense.
