"He's gotten two professional opinions," Payton said. "The first one was one that advised that he shouldn't play football again. The second opinion was a little different, and he's getting a third opinion or he's already gotten a third opinion, we're waiting on that opinion."
Analysis: Fairley was one of New Orleans' top defensive performers last season, credited with 6 1/2 sacks, nine tackles for losses and 22 quarterback hits. The former Detroit first-round draft choice out of Auburn also had 43 1/2 solo or assisted tackles, leading Saints interior linemen. This offseason, Fairley signed a four-year extension worth up to $28 million.
