New Orleans Saints defensive end Marcus Davenport will miss a few weeks with a pectoral strain, NFL Network reported Monday.

Though Davenport is likely to end up on short-term injured reserve, the injury isn’t as bad as the pectoral tear that was feared, per the report.

Davenport, 25, started Sunday’s win over Green Bay and finished with a sack and three tackles, two for loss.

Davenport has played in 38 games (15 starts), all for the Saints, who took him No. 14 overall in the 2018 draft.
