Nick Fairley will be sidelined for 2017 season, Saints say

Nick Fairley will be sidelined for 2017 season, Saints say

General manager Mickey Loomis said Monday that Fairley has been placed on the team's reserve list with a non-football illness designation, meaning the 2016 starter is out for this season.

After all, Fairley's heart condition is something National Football League teams have known about since before he became a pro, so it's not like the Saints were blindsided about the possibility it could end up becoming an issue one day.

Fairley's play helped him earn a four-year, $28 million extension in March. It was reported June 10 that a red flag was raised after physical examinations by Saints doctors and at least one heart specialist, all agreeing things changed over a 12-month period. But ultimately the Saints did not want to risk putting Fairley on the field this season because of the concerns that have crept up.

However, Payton explained that Fairley's condition had apparently worsened or become more concerning this year. He has been playing his whole National Football League career with an enlarged heart, which can be caused by health problems of varying severity.

It's particularly frustrating considering Fairley worked his butt off previous year and had one of his best seasons as a professional. However, a doctor has said that his career should not continue, according to Saints head coach Sean Payton.

Fairley was a first-round pick by the Lions and spent four seasons in Detroit.

Fairley's addition to the NFI list could result in him missing the entire 2017 season. "The second opinion was a little different, and he's. already gotten a third opinion".

Nick is coming off his best season as a pro with the 2016 season being a year that was reminiscent to Fairley's days at Auburn when he was named the SEC Defensive Player of the year in 2010.
