Unger (foot) is hopeful to be ready for action in Week 1, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Unger suffered a Lisfranc injury in Week 13 of last season. The original plan was to simply allow it time to heal, but he ultimately ended up having surgery in May. It is doubtful he participates in any preseason games, but his goal is to be ready for the start of the season.

Unger (foot) is now expected to return during the preseason, Mike Florio of NBC Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is in stark contrast to recent reports from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network that Unger would be on the Physically Unable to Perform list at the start of the regular season after undergoing foot surgery last weekend. Unger's return to action prior to the regular season commencing would be a huge turn of events for the Saints, as he is a leader along the offensive line and they lack depth along the interior portion of their front five.

Unger recently suffered a foot injury and is expected to open the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The details surrounding the extent of the injury aren't yet clear, but Unger's likely absence for the start of the season will create a huge void in the middle of the offensive line for the Saints. Unger, a two-time Pro Bowler, has been an anchor for the team's line since coming over from the Seahawks in the Jimmy Graham trade prior to the 2015 NFL Draft. Given the Saints' lack of experienced depth behind Unger, the team could be in the market for a veteran center to fill in.

Unger (foot) is active for Saturday's game against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran did not play the last time these two teams met, but he'll be back in the fold for Saturday's tilt. Unger and his line mates will have the tough task of slowing down Tampa Bay's defensive front anchored by Gerald McCoy.

Unger (foot) was a limited participant in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Unger has been battling a foot injury since Week 14, but he was able to play on it against Arizona following a one-game absence. The fact that he participated in Friday's practice is an encouraging sign for his status heading into Saturday's contest, but full confirmation on his availability won't come across until shortly before kickoff.

EDGE Analysis

Unger had been dealing with a foot injury that forced him to miss Week 14, but he will be good to go against the Cardinals. Look for him to take over as the Saints' starting center.

The Saints have listed Unger (foot) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Unger missed Week 14's loss to the Buccaneers, and his status for Sunday's game is seemingly up in the air. If he cannot go, Jack Allen would presumably be in line to fill in at center.

Unger will miss his first game in as a member of the Saints. Recent callup Jack Allen could see additional playing time as an effect.

Unger (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Unger missed some practice time this week and is a true toss up for Sunday's game. Look for Jack Allen to slide into the starting lineup if Unger is held out.
