New Orleans’ Kikaha tears ACL


    New Orleans Saints outside linebacker Hau‘oli Kikaha pressured Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck in the first half of a game in Indianapolis on Oct. 25, 2015.

METAIRIE, La. >> New Orleans outside linebacker Hau‘oli Kikaha, a second-round pick out of Washington in 2015, tore his ACL and will miss the 2016 season, reported today.

While the Saints and Kikaha’s agent, Marvin Demoff, did not respond to questions about the reason for the Kahuku alum’s absence from today’s practice, several teammates acknowledged that he was injured. Kikaha had four sacks and four forced fumbles last season.

Defensive end Cameron Jordan, now a senior member of the Saints’ defensive front, said he viewed Obum Gwacham, Kasim Edebali and Davis Tull as players who could step in if Kikaha — who had two left anterior cruciate ligament tears in college at Washington — is sidelined for an extended period.
