Good & Maybe Bad News From Today's Practice - UPDATED

from Jeff Duncan's Twitter:

- Only in New Orelans: Minicamp WhoDat crowd just serenaded Saints WR Marques Colston with "Happy Birthday Song." He turned 27 today.

- Usama Young is working at FS with first-team defense in place of Sharper (rehab) and Malcolm Jenkins (absent). Update on Jenkins post-prax
- M.Colston putting on a show right in individual passing drills. Beat blanket coverage by J.Greer twice. Left Greer just shaking his head.
hopefully MJ's absence isn't due to injury!

-----------------------------------UPDATE-------------------------------------

- Malcolm Jenkins did not practice this morning but he's OK. He said he bumped knees with a teammate on Friday.

- Saints installed their 3-4 defense today. Troy Evans worked w/ 1s at SLB. Bobby McCray also saw time at OLB.

- DTs Anthony Hargrove & Sedrick Ellis also saw reps at DE in the 3-4.

- CB play was very good today. WRs made some plays, particularly Colston & Lance Moore, but coverage was solid.

- Rough day overall for the QBS not named Brees. Saints will sign a veteran backup before camp. Book it.

- Morning hilite was either rookie TE Jimmy Graham's long TD on a seam route from Brees or U.Young's clothesline of R.Bush.

"May God have mercy on those who doubted his Saints."

Young could probably use the practice. I would hate for him to step on the field looking lost again. lol

Young is terrible. We are doomed if he plays.
