New Orleans Saints Training Camp Injury Update
One week after reporting to training camp, the New Orleans Saints only have a few notable injuries.
Most noteworthy is wide receiver Kenny Stills (pictured). Stills pulled his quad on day one practice last week, and missed his 5th straight practice this morning. There is no timetable set for his return.
Pro Bowl guard Ben Grubbs was a no go at practice this morning. He’s practiced sporadically since camp opened. While the team has given no specific answer as to why Grubbs is resting, it’s apparent he doesn’t have a significant injury. Last year, Grubbs sat out several training camp practices, but played in the preseason and started week 1.
Nose tackle John Jenkins has yet to practice at camp, as he remains on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list. He underwent minor pectoral surgery earlier this summer.
Considering some teams have already lost players to season-ending injuries, the Saints are in good shape one week into camp.
