Saints long snapper Jon Dorenbos to have surgery for aortic aneurysm

Posted Sep 8, 2017

Veteran will go on non-football injury list

New Orleans Saints long snapper Jon Dorenbos has an aortic aneurysm and will have to have surgery, Saints Coach Sean Payton announced Friday morning on his teleconference call with local media.

Payton said the team is bringing in a handful of players for tryouts Friday to replace Dorenbos, who was recently acquired in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles. He will be placed on the non-football injury list.

Saints doctor John Amoss discovered the pre-existing condition in a physical, Payton said. "It's a pretty serious condition that will require surgery," Payton said.

Dorenbos was entering his 15th season and has played in 201 games. He played collegiately at UTEP and made the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Buffalo Bills in 2003. He also played two seasons with the Tennessee Titans before joining the Eagles in 2006.

Dorenbos is an accomplished magician who has appeared on "America's Got Talent" and the "Ellen" show. He won the Ed Block Courage Award in 2008.
