Saints first round pick Sheldon Rankins breaks leg
New Orleans Saints first round pick Sheldon Rankinssbroke his fibula in practice. Sheldon a defensive tackle was being looked to, to help shore up a bad Saints defense. The good news for Saints fans is that Rankins may be able to return this season.
Rankins is short at 6ft 1 but plays with some power on the defensive line, and the Saints need all the help on defense that they can get. Rankins was carted off the practice field after teammates gathered around him to show their support.
