The New Orleans Saints earned the win Sunday but suffered a big loss on defense.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that pass-rusher Alex Okafor is out for the season with a torn Achilles, according to sources informed of the situation.

Okafor was carted off in the fourth quarter of the overtime win over the Washington Redskins.

Okafor, who signed a one-year, $3 million deal in New Orleans after four seasons in Arizona, was one of the best free agent bargains this season.
