A former LSU football standout unfortunately suffered a major injury, while trying to make the 2018 New Orleans Saints roster.


In his four seasons at LSU, the 6-foot, 205-pound Jefferson totaled 88 career tackles and four interceptions.

A native of New Orleans, Jefferson signed a reserve/futures contract with the Saints in January, prior to being cut after the team's rookie minicamp in May.

Jefferson was injured on the opening kickoff of the second half in the Saints' 20-15 preseason loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Friday night.
