If the New Orleans Saints were playing a game that counted Saturday night at Houston, Coach Sean Payton no doubt would have had real concern in his voice Wednesday night.


As it was, he was left scratching his head at an injury list he first said was uncomfortably long but later insisted was about the norm for this point in training camp. Of the 90 players allowed on NFL camp rosters, the Saints had 16 miss practice Wednesday.
"It's a bigger list than I'd like right now," Payton said. "It seems like in the last two or three days, it's gotten bigger."
Several starters were among those who missed practice, including guard Jahri Evans, a Pro Bowl starter last season. Evans' absence was a surprise, but Payton said the team backed off the six-year veteran who some rate the finest guard in the NFL because of some minor knee swelling. Evans is expected back on the field today, Payton said.

Sounds fruity... but I think yoga needs to be incorporated in their weekly workout routine.

And yoghurt too... it's good for the bones and you can put some fruit into it too.

Being flexible does help with the prevention of injuries. Maybe Papz is right.

Definitely a year to keep an eye on the team medical and conditioning staff. Injuries aren't their fault but they are their problem. Hope they can make more correct evaluations and decisions. If not, they could be held accountable.

You are right. On both accounts. Yes yoga may seem a bit "fruity" for lack of a better, but honestly, it does amazing things when it comes to core strength, flexibility, and most of all...Injury resistance.

So yeah, it's the modern day ballet for athletes. Good point.

And I said this last year, but has anyone scrutinized our trainers? I'm certainly not pointing any fingers, but maybe we should look at some of our practices in preventative maintenance.
