If you’ve ever watched Loni love on the sideline at a sporting event, you’ll know she’s just as talented as she was on the pitch.
The 21-year-old was forced to pull out of her first two NFL games due to a torn ACL and MCL, and was also unable to practice last week due to her injury.
However, Loni has been cleared to practice and play after spending the first half of the preseason working with the New Orleans Saints’ conditioning program.
Loni was also able to make her NFL debut with the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, and she returned to action on Tuesday, kicking a field goal against the Pittsburgh Steelers and finishing off the game with a 21-yarder in overtime.
Lonna has been on a tear since returning from the injury, and it appears she’s back to full health after missing the first three games of the season due to the knee injury.
The talented sophomore has been a force on the practice field and has made big plays, such as her touchdown return against the Carolina Panthers in Week 1.
Lontae’s versatility on the gridiron should help her develop into a reliable NFL wideout, and the Saints have made it clear that they’re hoping she can help in the future.
If Loni is able to keep her knee healthy for the entire season, it will likely mean more opportunities for her to shine on the big stage.
She was a top-10 pick in the 2016 NFL draft by the New York Giants and has already earned a spot on their practice squad.
