Saints Running Back Daniel Lasco Out For Rest Of Season
New Orleans Saints running back Daniel Lasco will miss the remainder of the 2017 NFL season, but it could have been a lot worse.
Lasco, who was taken off the field in an ambulance in the second quarter of the Saints' 47-10 win against the Buffalo Bills, will be out for the year, as he willl have surgery to correct a bulging disc.
The good news is that the injury isn't considered to be career-ending, and Lasco is expected to return next season.
The 25-year old Lasco was covering a kickoff when he made a head-first tackle on a Bills' returner, before going immediately to the ground.
A 7th round selection by the Saints in the 2016 NFL Draft, Lasco was motionless on the field and was tended to by medical personnel, before being immobilized and placed on a stretcher, and then loaded in the ambulance.
As a running back, Lasco has accumulated 33 yards on 11 carries, all with the Saints, in his NFL career.
