Junior Galette: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

A video has surfaced that allegedly shows Galette striking a woman with a belt in 2013, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Galette (pectoral) was told by Dr. James Andrews that he will not need surgery, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

There was some concern Galette would need surgery which might come with a recovery timetable in the range of 5-6 months. He'll instead try to treat the injury with rest and rehab, hoping to be healthy in time for Week 1. If his recovery doesn't go smoothly, it would be a huge loss for a Saints defense that's looking to bounce back from a dreadful 2014. Galette is coming off consecutive seasons with double-digit sacks.
Galette recently suffered a pectoral injury, and he's now evaluating his options in regard to a potential surgery, FOXSports.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

If Galette suffered a torn pectoral that requires surgery, he'll likely be looking at an absence in the range of five-to-six months, which would rule him out for at least the first few games of the season. With 22 sacks over the last two years, he's one of the most important players on a Saints defense that hopes to rebound from a dreadful 2014. Galette is also facing a civil suit in relation to a domestic violence arrest from January, but he will not face charges from the incident. The NFL doesn't necessarily need criminal charges filed to suspend a player for an off-field incident.
Galette will not face charges in relation to a recent domestic violence arrest, but a civil lawsuit was filed Thursday, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While the misdemeanor charges against Galette have been dropped, the civil lawsuit is expected to continue. The lack of criminal charges decreases the chance that Galette will face punishment from the NFL, but it doesn't entirely rule out the possibility.
Galette was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge Monday morning, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Galette allegedly pushed a woman to the ground after trying to force her out of his Louisiana residence, with the victim displaying visible injuries on her face and ear at the time police arrived. After the league revised its domestic violence policy in the wake of the incidents involving Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson during this past season, Galette would be subjected to a six-game suspension as a first-time offender. However, such a ban likely wouldn't be officially handed down until more information regarding Galette's situation becomes available to the league office. The 26-year-old, who signed a four-year, $41.5 million extension in September, just finished off his second consecutive season with double-digit sacks.
Galette had two tackles and two sacks in Monday's win over the Bears.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Galette finished sixth in the NFL with 12 sacks in 2013. Rushing the passer is clearly a specialty for the sack-happy Galette as an outside linebacker in the Saints 3-4 defense. The question, however, is whether Galette can make enough stops to warrant starting at linebacker over more consistent options in IDP leagues, as he had only 40 tackles on the season. As such, Galette presents a high-risk, high-reward option for owners in IDP leagues.

2013

With Victor Butler likely to miss the entire 2013 season with a torn ACL, Galette will start at outside linebacker in the Saints' 3-4 defense. Galette played defensive end his first three seasons in New Orleans after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2010. With 9.5 sacks in limited playing time the last two years, he projects as an interesting IDP sleeper if he can hold onto the starting spot.

2012

Galette is expected to see playing time in the defensive end rotation, and could even start while Will Smith is suspended for the first four games of the year.

2011

Galette will compete for a roster spot on the defensive line with the Saints.

2010

Galette made the Saints 53-man roster as an undrafted free agent. He will contribute mainly on special teams if he is active on game days.
