  • Saints' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Suffers major injury in offseason

    Kpassagnon suffered a torn Achilles at some point during the offseason, John Hendrix of reports.

    It's unclear exactly how or when Kpassagnon suffered the injury, but it will certainly impact his ability to be ready when the 2024 season starts. However, according to head coach Dennis Allen, the Villanova product may be able to return at some point during the season, Rod Walker of The Times-Picayune reports.

  • Saints' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Middling production in 2023

    Kpassagnon appeared in all 17 games during the 2023 regular season, tallying 19 tackles, including 3.5 sacks, and two passes defended.

    Kpassagnon played every regular-season game for the first time with the Saints, as he missed 11 games over the previous two campaigns. The 29-year-old still logged nine fewer tackles than the 2022 campaign when he tallied a career-high 28. Kpassagnon provided considerably more production than younger defensive ends Payton Turner and Isaiah Foskey, though these three will likely compete for a rotational role heading into the 2024 campaign.

  • Saints' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Goes berserk vs. Giants

    Kpassagnon recorded six tackles (five solo) including three sacks in Sunday's 24-6 win versus the Giants.

    Kpassagnon went into Sunday's game with just half a sack on the entire season, but he tore off three in Week 15, setting a new career high in that category. With Cameron Jordan currently tending to an ankle injury, Kpassagnon could be in line for an expanded role in Week 16.

  • Saints' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Reaches new deal with New Orleans

    The Saints signed Kpassagnon to a two-year extension Monday, reports.

    Kpassagnon is now slated to remain with the Saints through the next couple of years following his 28-tackle, two-sack 2022 campaign. The 28-year-old will presumably continue operating as a rotational defensive end behind starters Cameron Jordan and Marcus Davenport this coming season.

  • Saints' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Back at practice

    Kpassagnon (illness) is participating in Saturday's training camp session, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Kpassagnon began training camp on the active/non-football illness list, but his presence Saturday is an indication that he will be officially activated. Now that he's rejoined teammates, Kpassagnon will resume working to entrench himself in a rotational role for the 2022 campaign.

  • Saints' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Takes field

    Kpassagnon (ankle) participated in the Saints' recent OTAs, Sean Fazende of Fox 8 reports.

    Kpassagnon didn't play after Week 10 last season and finished the year on IR after sustaining an ankle injury. Before the injury the five-year pro was on a career-best pace, recording 18 tackles with four sacks in eight contests. He should fill a rotational role on the defensive line for the Saints in 2022.
