When the New Orleans Saints play the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday at Heinz Field they will be without the services of starting defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley.
According to a report by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Bunkley is believed to have suffered a torn quad in the first quarter of the Monday night loss to the Baltimore Ravens and the injury will more than likely end his season.
With Bunkley out, John Jenkins is expected to replace him in the starting lineup.
The Saints gave up 215 yards rushing Monday night in their loss to the Ravens and 135 of those yards came after Bunkley left the game injured.
As previously mentioned in an early post, expect the Steelers to run early and often against the Saints on Sunday.
