New Orleans Saints interim coach Joe Vitt said third-round draft pick defensive tackle Akiem Hicks may miss the first couple of days of training camp after sustaining a fractured hand in June during organized team activities. Vitt said Hicks could end up starting Thursday's camp on the physically unable to perform list with the ailment.

Running back Mark Ingram said at the end of the offseason workout program in June that his scoped left knee would be completely healed when training camp begins. But Vitt said Tuesday that the training staff would monitor Ingram leading to the possibility of Ingram being limited when camp opens Thursday.

There was no update on running back Chris Ivory, who missed the last week of OTAs with an injured hamstring. Vitt said during the last week of OTAs in June that he hoped Ivory would be ready for the start of training camp.

The second coming of Glover.


And it was already known that Hicks would miss the start of the training camp, because that much was revealed when he initially sustained the injury.

It's just his hand, not worried at all. Better this than his knee, or something that would end his career before it even starts

It's just a broken bone in his hand. They heal.
