The NFL training camp schedule is just a few weeks ago. The teams will officially start in July, as they ramp things up for the upcoming 2017 season.

According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, the New Orleans Saints will be without starting tackle Terron Armstead for a while after tearing a labrum. He’s going to undergo surgery on Monday to repair the injury.

He reportedly suffered the injury on Wednesday, then tests confirmed the injury on Thursday. He is expected to be out four-to-six months.

Rapoport is reporting that he could return to the team anywhere between October to December.

This is the second major injury to the Saints offensive line this off-season. Center Max Unger also had off-season surgery on his foot.

Armstead missed nine games during the 2016 season. He was drafted in the third-round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Last off-season, he signed a six-year, $65.25 million deal.

With the Saints now in need of a tackle, they have some in-house options. They could move left guard Andrus Peat to tackle, or use first-round draft pick Ryan Ramczyk or Khalif Barnes at the position to begin the season until Armstead is able to return.
