Report: Saints linebacker Victor Butler tore ACL
New Orleans Saints linebacker Victor Butler tore his ACL during Tuesday's OTA session, reports The Times-Picayune's Larry Holder.
Butler signed with New Orleans this offseason and was to be a key part of the team's retooled defense. Butler went down Tuesday after colliding with running back Mark Ingram during a drill in the non-contact practice. Saints coach Sean Payton said after the session that Butler and Ingram had banged knees and he thought Butler would be fine.
