    Victor Butler tears ACL Brutal news for New Orleans Saints linebacker Victor Butler as he tore his ACL during Tuesday's organized team activities practice, according to a source. Butler was a key free-agent signing during the offseason and figured to be a player to help the Saints' lackluster pass rush. Butler was on the first-team defense at outside linebacker, opposite Will Smith, the last two weeks of practice. The source also said Butler will likely end up on injured reserve and Butler will have surgery once the swelling in his injured knee has subsided. This was the last week of OTAs for the Saints, and Wednesday's practice session was canceled so the players could take a field trip. Running back Mark Ingram took a swing pass during a team drill during Tuesday's practice and collided with Butler near the sideline. Ingram ran free, but Butler remained on the turf for a couple of minutes. Ingram and Saints coach Sean Payton went over to check on Butler while Butler was on the turf.
