Saints defense optimistic it can hold up without Rankins

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Saints third-year defensive tackle David Onyemata plans to spend Tuesday - the players' usual day off - performing some extra conditioning work at club headquarters.

He is among a trio of defensive linemen likely headed for more snaps against one of the best offenses in the NFL with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.

Sheldon Rankins, the Saints' most productive interior defensive lineman, won't play in the NFC title game against the Los Angeles Rams - or any other game this season - after tearing his Achilles in the first quarter of Sunday's playoff victory over Philadelphia .
