METAIRIE, La. (AP) — The New Orleans Saints have placed edge pass rusher Hau’oli Kikaha on injured reserve, ending his season. New Orleans filled his spot on the roster by bringing back Kasim Edebali, who spent the previous three seasons with the club.
Kikaha, who had missed practice this week with an injured ankle, sees his season end after making four sacks, four tackles for losses and had one pass defended.
Kikaha, a former second-round in 2015, came back to play 12 games this season after rehabilitating from and anterior crucial ligament repair — this third since college — that sidelined him for all of 2016.
The Saints claimed Edebali after he was waved by the Los Angeles Rams.
Edebali appeared in 16 games in each of his first three pro seasons — all in New Orleans, and had as many as five sacks in 2015.
But after making only one sack in 2016, he was not retained and has played in 13 games this season with Denver and Detroit. He did not play while with the Rams.
