Today's injuries

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It looks like all injuries were minor and that is a relief. We need to be as healthy as possible for the playoffs. Last year we had everybody available in the playoffs and......well you know the rest....

I was at the game and sit in the endzone where the Saints locker room is. After the TD, the trainers were looking at Greaham's foot, ankle and he jog off to the locker room. It looked to me like a minor sprain or twisting of the ankle and he should be fine. If the game had any meaning he could have come back in. Jenkins took a shot from Blount and it looked like knee on knee with a lot of emphasis on the kneecap in particular. Hopefully it's just a bruise. Ivory is a reckless runner. Just look what he did when he ran over Barry Rudd. Probably another twisted ankle hopefully minor. Didn't really see when he left the field but out of all of the injuries yesterday I believe Graham's is least severe but hopefully they are all minor and Payton just kept them out of a meaningless game.

The Saints suffered several key injuries during Sunday’s regular-season finale against the Bucs. Running back Chris Ivory left with a foot injury, and tight end Jimmy Graham suffered an ankle injury.

The biggest concern centers on safety Malcolm Jenkins, who left in the first quarter with a knee injury.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Jenkins will have an MRI today. It’s believed to be an issue more with the knee cap than with the ligaments. That said, we’re told that Jenkins thinks he’ll be fine.

Either way, the Saints will need to get their injured guys ready to go on Saturday, when they head to Seattle to commence the quest for “Two Dat.”

I was wondering what happened to Ivory. He's not going to be much used to us if he can't finish a game. That's sad too, because he's an awesome runner and has so much potential. Bush did pretty good stepping up today, but he's not going to replace Ivory.

Didn't someone say that Ivory was seen on crutches, wearing a boot? I certainly hope not. I say we draft a RB somewhere anyway. Also need a OLB.... A really mean one, that eats live chickens before games.....

Jenkins walked off on his own power, so guessing he's not hurt too bad.

Hope Ivory gets better. It was beautiful when he flat ran over Ruud's tackle early on in the game.

Yes Ivory was spotted in a Booty and on crutches.. however it could just be precautionary and to let off weight on it.
