Haener was not anticipated to participate this season despite displaying promise during the preseason. Veteran quarterback Derek Carr starts for the Saints, and veteran Jameis Winston serves as his backup.
On October 16, the Monday before the Saints' Week 6 matchup against Houston, Haener will be able to rejoin the team's active roster.
After participating in all three of New Orleans' preseason games, Haener, a fourth-round draft pick out of Fresno State, was added to the roster for the regular season. For 395 yards and a touchdown, he completed 38 of his 72 passes (52.8%). Additionally, he was stopped three times.
The banned chemical for which Haener tested positive was not identified in the NFL statement.
