The New Orleans Saints managed to pull off a very impressive 23-17 victory against their division rival Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.  Unfortunately for the Saints this came at a price.  Nose-Tackle Brodrick Bunkley had to leave the game after getting tangled up with Atlanta running back Steven Jackson.  Bunkley did not return to the game and the extent of the injury seemed fairly severe.According to Ian Rapoport, Bunkley will be out for several weeks with a calf injury.  Fortunately it does not appear that he will be out for the remainder of the season. Bad news for #Saints: Starting NT Brodrick Bunkley is expected to be out several weeks with a calf injury, per source. Not season-ending— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 11, 2013 Bunkley will be replaced by rookie John Jenkins whom also took his place after exiting Sunday’s game.  With Bunkley on the shelf, he will join teammates Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Victor Butler and Kenyon Coleman on the Saints injury list.  It is amazing to think that with all these injuries on defense that New Orleans was able to hold the Falcons to only 17-points on Sunday.  The 1-0 Saints will head to Tampa Bay to take on the 0-1 Buccaneers on Sunday and look to improve to 2-0 within their division.  Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
