Saints Lose Will Smith for Season

Stacy Revere/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- New Orleans Saints linebacker Will Smith will have surgery to repair a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season, according to ESPN.

ESPN also reports Dr. James Andrews will handle the surgery.

Smith has played all nine of his NFL seasons with the Saints. The 32-year-old had 58 tackles and six sacks last season.

Outside linebackers getting hurt is becoming redundant for the Saints. Victor Butler tore his ACL and will likely miss the season, while Martez Wilson (elbow) and Junior Galette missed most of training camp with their injuries.
