The New Orleans Saints “definitely” expect kickoff return Courtney Roby to return to the lineup at some point this season, according to Coach Sean Payton. But they don’t expect him to be back in time for Sunday’s game at Baltimore.

Roby was carted off the field last Sunday after suffering a concussion against the St. Louis Rams. He stayed in the hospital overnight for observation. But Payton said reports were positive and Roby didn’t suffer any significant injuries to his neck. Now, Roby will need to be evaluated and cleared by an independent concussion specialist before he is cleared to return to practice.
