Updating an earlier report, New Orleans Saints TE Adam Trautman (foot) had X-rays taken of his foot come back negative Monday, Aug. 23. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Tuesday, Aug. 24, as he's still experiencing some pain.
Huddle Up: Trautman has garnered some sleeper TE2 buzz so we'll see what the MRI reveals. If he's set to miss significant time, Juwan Johnson might warrant some attention.

New Orleans Saints TE Adam Trautman (ankle, foot) left the field on a cart with an apparent ankle or foot injury in the first quarter of a preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday, Aug. 23.
Huddle Up: Stay tuned. Trautman has been a popular sleeper pick all summer long, although it could be argued Juwan Johnson has stood out more during camp. If Trautman's injury turns out to be serious, Johnson would be a worthwhile TE2 addition in all leagues given that he is a former receiver who would be a matchup nightmare for most defenses.

Huddle Up: Trautman may take a couple of years to develop into a fantasy asset at tight end. He's only an option in dynasty formats.
