Saints center Max Unger may not miss any regular season games this year after all.

Per a source for Pro Football Talk, the Saints currently expect that Unger will return during the preseason.

Reports Monday had the 31-year old likely to miss games during the season after needing foot surgery this offseason.

New Orleans acquired Unger in the Jimmy Graham trade with Seattle in 2015. Unger has missed one game in the past two regular seasons.
