Lynell Hamilton done for the year (pg.3 update)
 
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Saints believe the knee injury sustained by Lynell Hamilton Wednesday morning is a torn ACL.

It's a tough break for Hamilton, who was on track to pick up many of the inside touches that Mike Bell handled last year. There's now a much stronger chance that Pierre Thomas will take over goal-line duties, though he'll have to hold off young power backs P.J. Hill and Chris Ivory. The Saints could also revisit free agent Ladell Betts.

If this is true, I'm glad PJ Hill knows the playbook and Ivory has been turning some heads. It's a loss, but certainly manageable.

Just another reason that training camp and preseason is just a bad idea. I hope this is the end of the injury bug and not the beginning.

Saints' running back Lynell Hamilton injured in practice; could be gone for season
 
Quote:

The three-headed monster at running back that people were looking forward to this season for the New Orleans Saints just got short one head.

Running back Lynell Hamilton went down in practice on Wednesday with what is being reported as an ACL tear in his right knee. ESPN's Adam Schefter said that is what the team suspects it to be and it could cost him his season.

Coach Sean Payton said after practice that the team would examine him to find out the true severity.

Reggie Bush did return to practice on Wednesday after being held out of Tuesday's afternoon session.

Hamilton figured to be a big part of the offense this year by most likely filling in for the void let by Mike Bell who signed with Philadelphia.

The Saints now have Pierre Thomas and Bush, but also a host of other running backs that could step into Hamilton's spot should be really be gone all season.

P.J. Hill and Chris Ivory are two names that have been heard of a lot this training camp, but chances are the Saints will also bring in some veteran running backs to check out more players. More on this story as it develops.

Injuries happen in the NFL every day. Lynell's injury is nothing new and certainly is not a reason to cut out the entire preseason.

I hate this happened to Lynell. He really had the opportunity this season.
