Saints nose tackle Broderick Bunkley has left New Orleans' regular-season opener against the Falcons with a lower right leg injury.
The Saints have announced that his return is questionable.
Bunkley appeared to be tangled up on a short running play in which Steven Jackson gained 3 yards deep in Saints territory.
John Jenkins, a rookie out of Georgia drafted in the third round, has replaced Bunkley in the lineup since the first quarter.
