Zach Strief is likely to become the next Saints offensive lineman to miss multiple weeks, after the right tackle was diagnosed with an MCL sprain, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.

Strief suffered the injury to his left knee in the second quarter of the Monday night loss at the Minnesota Vikings and did not return. Senio Kelemete, who has been with the team the past four seasons, played the remainder of the game. However, New Orleans may turn to starting right guard Larry Warford to fill Strief’s spot next weekend.

The Saints are already without starter Terron Armstead, leaving rookie Ryan Ramczyk to fill the void at left tackle.

PRAX SQUAD LOSS TO JAX

With Allen Robinson out for the season with a torn ACL, the Jacksonville Jaguars have signed wide receiver Max McCaffrey off of New Orleans’ practice squad. McCaffrey spent this past preseason with Green Bay.
