Didn't say anywhere. All I read was he was was seen talking with a trainer and then walked off the field. That doesn't sound too significant.

Tautu appears to be the only one that show be of concern.. MCL strain according to early reports.

Re: 2017 New Orleans Saints Training Camp

A few things I've gathered so far...

The Good
Brandon Coleman is looking like a beast.
Alvin Kamara is looking like Marshall Faulk.
Ryan Ramczyk is the real deal.
Marshon Lattimore sticks like glue.

The Bad
Our DB's are not very good in zone coverage and that's what Dennis Allen likes to run.
We don't have a good back-up center.

Hopefully Dennis Allen does what he has preached this offseason and puts his players in a position to be successful. If for some reason a coverage isn't working he will hopefully adjust until it does. But, you can't know what works until you try and that is what this time of year is all about.

  1. Heat, physical workout take toll on players
  2. David Onyemata getting an opportunity to make an impact
  3. Marshon Lattimore finding his way at cornerback
  4. Alex Anzalone pushing Stephone Anthony at weak-side linebacker
  5. Pass rush remains a question mark
  6. Jordan, Kenny Vaccaro displaying leadership

Re: 2017 New Orleans Saints Training Camp

We won't know much about this team until we see them against other teams in preseason and even then we won't know much until it counts. Talk with me week 4 or 5. That said we have some play makers and I'd say we have more talent than the last few years. Oline is a possible strength and hopefully Unger is back sooner than later.

Read Duncan said we are not getting much disruption and pressure minus Cam Jordan, only day 4 but that's not going to get it done.

6 takeaways from the defense at Saints camp | NOLA.com

Some other odds and ends: Typical rookie day for Marcus Williams at free safety. A couple of bad angles and got blown up in special teams drills by running back Trey Edmunds.

...Two eye-catchers on the reserve defense were linebacker Adam Bighill and defensive lineman Mitchell Loewen....

Loewen is a bit of a ‘tweener at 6-5, 275, but he makes plays. One to watch...

...Ken Crawley... had a nice interception of Garrett Grayson during 7-on-7 drills and also had a nice PBU against Corey Fuller...

...Some communication issues led to a couple of blown assignments and big plays for the offense during teams drills. Linebacker A.J. Klein said the unit obviously needs to clean up the miscues but said that's what these early workouts are for, saying the tape from the workout would be a good learning experience for the defense...

...Not a defensive observation, but Thomas Gafford didn't help himself in the long snapper competition by sailing a ball over the head of punter Thomas Morstead and out of the back of the end zone. Yikes!

... Speaking of special teams, looks like Alvin Kamara will get the first crack at kickoff return duties.

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...
