Injuries are unfortunate and part of the game but JB's knee hasn't been right in almost 3 years.

New Orleans Saints safety Jairus Byrd did not participate in OTAs on Thursday and is rehabbing a knee injury that has plagued him since 2014.

Saints coach Sean Payton said that Byrd is expected back for training camp, as is Cam Jordan, who is rehabbing a back injury and did not practice.

"He's going through his rehab, he's right on schedule," Payton said. "It's nothing different than what was expected. He was expected to be ready when training camp starts and right now he's getting walkthroughs and some individual work. He's on schedule."

The waiting until training camp is a problem. These players need him now. The chemistry is not going to be there with Bell and Byrd.

Sit him on the bench until he can be released with minimal effect against our cap...

If he's injured and unable to play, put him on injured reserve and move on so the team can gel...

Re: Non-Saints: Jairus Byrd out with knee injury

I understand about jelling, but Byrd at 100% is probably our 2nd or 3rd best player on defense.
Let's see how healthy he is when TC starts before we blackball him
