Saints DE Davenport ruled out vs. Rams

METAIRIE, La. (AP) — The New Orleans Saints have ruled out rookie defensive end Marcus Davenport for Sunday's game against the unbeaten Los Angeles Rams.

Davenport had two sacks in New Orleans' victory last Sunday at Minnesota, but also injured his toe during the game.

Although he played through the injury in Minnesota, he sat out practice throughout this week and ultimately was ruled out on Friday.

Davenport has four sacks this season and also has forced a fumble. He has five tackles for losses, seven quarterback hits and has deflected two passes.

His absence is expected to increase snaps for veteran Alex Okafor and possibly second-year pro Trey Hendrickson.

Meanwhile, running back Alvin Kamara returned to Saints practice on Friday after missing practice on Thursday because he was ill.
