Saints Place LB A.J. Klein on IR with Groin Injury

The Saints placed linebacker A.J. Klein on injured reserve Tuesday with a groin injury, Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

He suffered the injury in the first quarter of the Week 14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons fans and sat out the Week 15 win over the New York Jets last Sunday, and the Saints have decided to end his season.

Klein underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia last week, according to a source familiar with the situation. The procedure typically carries a four- to six-week recovery timetable.

With the open roster spot, the Saints are bringing back tight end John Phillips, who was with the team for eight games last season as well as the 2017 offseason.
