Report: Saints OT Trevor Penning could return in Nov.

New Orleans Saints rookie offensive tackle Trevor Penning could return from foot surgery in November, NFL Network reported Monday.

It was thought that Penning, who was placed on injured reserve last week, might miss the entire 2022 season. The team said he would be out indefinitely.

Penning, 23, tore ligaments in his left foot in the Aug. 26 preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Penning was selected No. 19 overall by the Saints in this year’s draft. James Hurst returned to practice last week and is expected to start in Week 1. Hurst had been sidelined since mid-August due to a foot injury.

New Orleans opens the season at Atlanta on Sunday.

Report: Saints first-round OT Trevor Penning (toe) to get MRI

New Orleans Saints rookie offensive tackle Trevor Penning has a “bad case of turf toe,” NFL Network reported Saturday.

The first-round draft pick (19th overall) will have an MRI to determine the extent of the damage and a timeline for his return.

Penning, 23, sustained the injury during the opening drive of a 27-10 preseason win against the Los Angeles Chargers on Friday night.

It has been an eventful offseason for the 6-foor-7, 321-pound lineman, who was booted from practice on Aug. 3 after a third straight day of fighting.

Drafted out of Northern Iowa, Penning entered training camp as the backup to starting left tackle James Hurst. Hurst has been out of practice since mid-August due to a foot injury.

New Orleans opens the season at Atlanta on Sept. 11.

The New Orleans Saints kicked rookie offensive tackle Trevor Penning out of practice Wednesday for fighting.

It was the third straight day the first-round draft pick (19th overall) got into a skirmish at training camp.

Penning, 23, and defensive lineman Malcolm Roach were sent to the locker room after Wednesday’s scuffle.

“We don’t have time for that,” head coach Dennis Allen said.

On Monday, the 6-foot-7, 321-pound Penning battled defensive ends Payton Turner and Taco Charlton.

On Tuesday, Penning’s dance partners were defensive back J.T. Gray and defensive end Scott Patchan.

Drafted out of Northern Iowa, Penning entered training camp as the backup to starting left tackle James Hurst.
