Saints HC Sean Payton announced Thursday that CB Delvin Breaux will remain on their injured reserve for the duration of the 2017 season.

This shouldn’t come as a big surprise, as reports from last week mentioned that Breaux suffered a setback during practice that was going to make it difficult for him to be activated this year.

Breaux’s timeline for return was reportedly 3-6 weeks, so it’s not as though the Saints could have afforded to keep him on their active roster during this time.
