The New Orleans Saints got a vital win in Week 5 against the Seahawks. Unfortunately, it came at a cost at wide receiver once again.
Rookie WR Chris Olave left the game with a concussion, and veteran WR Deonte Harty suffered a foot injury.
There has been no update on Olave yet. Harty’s injury sounds like it could be significant, though. It is a turf toe injury for Harty, and those tend to linger for receivers.
The Saints will have to adjust on offense and special teams due to this injury to Harty.
Deonte Harty suffered a turf toe injury yesterday, according to a source. He is expected to miss some time. Fear is the injury could be significant.

The WR position is very thin right now, but they could get Jarvis Landry and Michael Thomas back next week against the Bengals.
The Saints need that talent at receiver back as soon as possible. They were down to three wideouts by the end of the game against Seattle.
On special teams, Marquez Callaway and Taysom Hill may take over most of the duties in the return game. They are the safest options for the Saints right now.
