In a report from Katherine Terrell of ESPN, tight end Ben Watson won't play against the Rams this weekend.
New Orleans Saints tight end Ben Watson won't play this week against the Rams, according to a source. Watson missed two practices due to appendicitis, and while he's been able to avoid surgery so far, the team decided he'll be inactive this week.
It's a major blow to the Saints offense. The team will have to pick up the pieces and make it work with what they have at that position.
