                   === Report: Saints LB Butler tears ACL ===
 
 New Orleans, LA (Sports Network) - New Orleans Saints linebacker Victor Butler
 reportedly tore his ACL during Tuesday's organized team activities practice.
 
 According  to  the New  Orleans Times-Picayune,  Butler will  likely end up on
 injured reserve.
 
 Butler  had to be helped off the field following a collision with running back
 Mark  Ingram.  Saints coach Sean Payton  said he thought Butler would be fine,
 but it appears an MRI has showed otherwise.
 
 The  25-year-old  Oregon  State  product  was signed  by  the  Saints  in  the
 offseason. New Orleans had plans to use Butler as a pass rusher in coordinator
 Rob Ryan's 3-4 defensive front.
 
 Butler  tallied  89 tackles  and 11  sacks in  63 games  with the Cowboys from
 2009-2012.
