Davenport has been dealing with injuries to the same finger for years as the defensive end tore ligaments in college. The Texas-San Antonio alum has had multiple surgeries since, and it has apparently come to having a section of his pinkie cut off as being the best option.
Playing his fifth-year option this upcoming season, the former 14th overall pick of New Orleans is coming off a career year. Davenport registered a personal best with nine sacks last year.
FanDuel Sportsbook has the Saints as -4.5 point road favorites as they visit Atlanta in Week 1. New Orleans is -205 on the moneyline, and the game total is set at 42.5.
