Peat, who was the Saints’ first-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft, reportedly will not need surgery, but could be out for at least four weeks.
On Thursday, the rookie was making just his second start at left tackle after Terron Armstead sustained a knee injury against the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 4. Peat left the game in the first quarter and was replaced by Tony Hills.
The 6'7", 316-pound offensive tackle played three years at Stanford and won the Morris Trophy as the Pac-12’s top offensive lineman last season.
