Draft Scout Max Unger News
06/14/17 - After an initial five-week recovery period, veteran C Max Unger is ready to take the next step in his return from foot surgery this spring.
Unger, who had a surgical procedure to repair a space in the Lisfranc area of his foot, said Wednesday the next phase of his rehab will be a walking boot. After that is a return to the practice field sometime in August and if all goes well, he will take his usual spot in the starting lineup for the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings on Sept. 11. Saints coach Sean Payton said earlier this spring that he thought Unger would return late in the exhibition season and Unger reiterated that Wednesday when he met with reporters. "Surgery this time of year is obviously not what you want, but this is an injury that just kind of developed," Unger said. "The No. 1 thing is we got it fixed, and hopefully, I'll be able to come back Week 1." The nine-year veteran injured his foot against the Detroit Lions last fall, but doctors thought the space in the bones of the foot would heal on its own. But a re-examination in the early spring indicated that surgery was necessary. "This had potential long-term consequences, so it wasn't really an option of whether to get it fixed or not," Unger said. "The procedure went well, so it's the best you can hope for."
05/13/17 - C Max Unger, who recently underwent foot surgery, is expected to be ready to play in Week 3 of the preseason. There were reports speculating that Unger would miss start of the regular season, but Saints coach Sean Payton said otherwise on Saturday. "We anticipate probably early August," Payton told reporters on day two of rookie minicamp when asked about Unger's return. "I see him possibly being able to get into the preseason. Our goal would be Week 3 (of the preseason), so that's where he's at." The 31-year-old Unger has been dealing with the same foot injury that caused him to miss one game last season against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14.
05/13/17 - C Max Unger could have a chance to get back on the field before the end of the preseason schedule, coach Sean Payton said Saturday. Payton said Unger, who recently had foot surgery, has a chance to return by the third week of the preseason despite reports early last week that had Unger not returning until the start of the regular season.
A key to the Saints' offensive line, Unger originally injured the foot last season and the injury lingered into the offseason after Dr. James Andrews initially believed it would heal on its own.
05/08/17 - C Max Unger suffered a foot injury and likely will miss the start of the 2017 regular season with the Saints, according to reports Monday. Unger, 31, underwent foot surgery over the weekend and the Saints are expected to begin the season without a key member of the offensive line, a source told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. He will start the season on the physically unable to perform list and miss about five months, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported. Unger started 31 of 32 games for the Saints the past two seasons after being acquired as part of the 2015 trade that sent tight end Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks.
12/29/16 - C Max Unger had limited participation in practice Wednesday because of a nagging foot injury, but could play Sunday.
