Bad news for Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill. Trautman was/is expected to be the main catching tight end, while Vannett the main blocking tight end. Word out of camp has Juwan Johnson as a wild card following an impressive showing the past few weeks and could be the starting tight end to open 2021. The converted wide receiver saw a snap increase during New Orleans's Week 2 preseason game following injuries to Trautman and Vannett.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Adam Trautman injured his foot, and while he received good news initially from on-site X-rays he will receive an MRI on Tuesday to identify what’s causing him “mild pain.”
The fact that Trautman was able to move around under his own power — until the trainers gave him a lift on the cart to the locker room — suggests he avoided major injury, the story said. But the piece added this isn’t something we’ll really know much more about until the results from his MRI come in on Tuesday. Johnson would be next up on the depth chart at TE for the Saints.
