Marshon Lattimore, DB (NO)

Opts for surgery on thumb

Lattimore will undergo surgery Tuesday to address a chipped bone in his thumb, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Saints are viewing him as week-to-week.

Lattimore helped shut down the Green Bay passing attack in New Orleans' season-opening 38-3 win and was rewarded with a lavish contract extension later that day, but Sunday didn't bring entirely good news for the star cornerback. Though he was nursing a knee injury heading into the opener, that's now a secondary concern after Lattimore sustained the thumb injury in the blowout victory. The Saints have yet to reveal how long Lattimore will be sidelined following surgery, but consider him doubtful, at best, for this weekend's game in Carolina.
