Agree with others in another thread, for all the poor tackling in the Jags game it appears the team, especially the defense, was gassed coming into that game. They flew to the HOF game, left that night with layover headed strait to Connecticut to practice with Pats. Half week of one-on-ones with the Pats then a Preseason game, they fly back to NOLA on a short week and play the Jags on Friday.

Including prep for HOF game, that puts them going straight since about the end of July. Today is the 20th of August.

We will need to move Wilson back to LB, and should look at bringing is Shawn Merriman.
But.....
"It's speculation now that they will be out for the first game," Vitt said. "We certainly think Curtis will be ready for the first game. The diagnosis for David has been encouraging. He hurt it early in the (Jaguars) game, and he played on it. He's got a chance to be back for that game."

Just a couple of days ago I thought we looked pretty good at LB'er.

Re: Saints Linebackers Suffer Injuries and a Suspention

A high ankle sprain can be a season-long injury that nags Lofton... He may be able to play come week 1 but will he be 100%?

You can play on a bum ankle. Tommy Meyers had a high ankle sprain for about twelve years.
