FORT WORTH, Texas — New Orleans Saints star cornerback Marshon Lattimore is set to have surgery on Tuesday to fix a chipped bone in his thumb, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
Lattimore will be week-to-week with the injury as he recovers, according to Rapoport.
The three-time Pro Bowl cornerback sustained the injury in the first half of the game against the Green Bay Packers, and returned after missing one defensive series with a cast on his right arm.
Before Sunday's game, Lattimore worked out a long-term extension that is set to pay him $97.6 million over five years.
With Lattimore week-to-week, the Saints have three other available cornerbacks on the 53-man roster: newly-acquired Bradley Roby, rookie Paulson Adebo and Desmond Trufant.
Lattimore is one of three starters who sustained injuries on Sunday. Center Erik McCoy is dealing with a calf strain that could leave him out for up to five weeks and defensive end Marcus Davenport strained his pectoral muscle and will miss some time.
