The happy homecoming for Trai Turner unfortunately did not last long.

The offensive guard tore his quadriceps with the New Orleans Saints just days after signing with his hometown team. Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported the severity of the injury.

Turner was carted off Friday at practice, and the injury will end the season for the former St. Augustine High School and LSU star before it even starts.

The 30-year old inked a one-year deal this week with New Orleans, his fourth team in as many years. Turner was a five-time Pro Bowl selection with the Panthers. Since then, he’s played for the Chargers, Steelers and Commanders.
