08:01 AM ET 09.02 | Garrett Hartley became Saints hero of sorts when his right foot put New Orleans into Super Bowl XLIV with an overtime kick and then set a record by nailing three field goals of more than 40 yards. [Now, Hartley] will be out at least six weeks and possibly as many as 10, according to a league source. Hartley suffered a hip flexor while converting an extra point in the Saints' 40-20 victory over Oakland last Sunday. ... [Four] days later he was having difficulty walking and his entire right side was black-and-blue, a league source said. The injury will not require surgery, and hopefully Hartley would be able to return in 6 to 8 weeks. But the source said it is possible the kicker will be out from between 8 to 10 weeks.
