The New Orleans Saints are going to have to play the next few games without one of their starting offensive linemen.


The 26-year old Warford suffered an abdominal in the first half of the Saints' 26-17 road win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

A native of San Diego, California, Warford played the first four years of his career with the Detroit Lions, before signing a four-year, $34 million free agent contract with the Saints during the offseason.

Senio Kelemente replaced Warford at right guard on Sunday.
