New Orleans placed Turner (toe) on injured reserve Wednesday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
Turner played only seven defensive snaps in the Saints' season opener before exiting with a turf toe injury. The issue is serious enough to potentially require surgery, thus his placement on IR. Turner isn't eligible to return until mid-October, with Tanoh Kpassagnon likely seeing increased action in his place.

Coach Dennis Allen said Monday that Turner will probably have to have surgery for turf toe, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
It's a brutal break for Turner, who only got to play seven defensive snaps in New Orleans' opener before being forced out with the injury. Exactly how much time he can be expected to miss is anyone's guess at this point, but in the meantime, veteran Tanoh Kpassagnon will probably see increased reps at defensive end.
Turner is believed to be dealing with turf toe that should require surgery, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Turner left Sunday's regular-season opener due to his injury, and he'll likely be forced to miss additional time early in the regular season. The 2021 first-rounder has missed significant time due to injuries to begin his professional career, and Tanoh Kpassagnon could see an increased role during Turner's impending absence.
Turner has exited Sunday's game against the Titans with a toe injury, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
Turner's departure will leave New Orleans light on the defensive front, with Tanoh Kpassagnon as the only reserve edge rusher on the depth chart. The former will try and return in the second half.
