Some Saints injury updates

Saints WR Adrian Arrington underwent knee surgery.

There's no timetable for his return. Arrington was pushing hard for No. 4 wideout duties with a strong camp, but those aspirations are scrapped now. Injured Nick Toon (foot), Joseph Morgan and Courtney Roby are the candidates for gig.

Darren Sproles sustained a minor knee injury during Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots.

If it were the regular season, Sproles would play against the Jaguars this Friday. But he'll rest up and is expected to be a go for the Saints' fourth preseason game. Sproles hasn't missed a single regular season game in the last four years.

Garrett Hartley remains the favorite to win the Saints kicker job.

Veteran John Kasay was signed just in case Hartley wasn't fully recovered from his 2011 hip injury. Hartley is 17 years younger, has four years left on his contract and has kicked well in practices. The Superdome and the Saints' explosive offense make Hartley a strong fantasy kicking option.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Re: Some Saints updates

I would like to know about Hawthorne's status. He didn't play against the PATS and Cassilas started in his place. I have yet to hear any news on him.

Re: Some Saints updates

Knee injuries.....

Sproles - No surgery = minor

Arrington - ANY knee injury that requires surgery is MAJOR... Clean out, cartilage scrape.... All major... When you clean out or scrape cartilage you remove a little cartilage each time...

Darren Sproles sidelined with sore knee

Saints running back Darren Sproles will spend this week nursing a sore knee.

Sproles will sit out Friday night’s preseason game against the Jaguars, Saints coach Joe Vitt confirmed today. However, the injury is not particularly serious, and Vitt said that if it were the regular season, Sproles would go.
