METAIRIE, La. (AP) — New Orleans Saints kicker Wil Lutz has scheduled surgery to a repair a core muscle injury and it’s not clear if he’ll return in time for the regular season. The Saints have signed former Dallas Cowboys kicker Brett Maher to fill in. Maher’s agent Derrick Fox confirmed to The Associated Press that Maher has signed a one-year contract. Lutz announced his procedure with a post on social media and Saints coach Sean Payton says New Orleans would have to replace Lutz “at least for preseason.” Lutz has played in every game for New Orleans since making the team as an undrafted rookie out of Georgia State in 2016.
