After suffering an ACL injury in in last year’s playoffs, Saints linebacker Kiko Alonso is not ready at the start of training camp.

The team placed the soon-to-be 30-year old on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list on Saturday.

The latest ACL tear for Alonso suffered in January is the third of his pro career. He could still join the roster for the start of the regular season.

Alonso is set to make $7.8 million this year before becoming a free agent.

New Orleans added veteran linebacker Nigel Bradham earlier this week.
