Unger will likely begin the campaign on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, added Rapoport.
The 31-year-old underwent surgery on the foot over this past weekend, a source told Herbie Teope of The Times-Picayune.
If the veteran is on the PUP list to start the year, he’ll miss the first six games of the regular season – a significant blow to the Saints’ strong offensive line.
