Saints LB Alex Anzalone 'going to be healthy' for season's start, Sean Payton says

Saints fans may see starting middle linebacker Alex Anzalone soon.
Anzalone hasn't practiced since the first preseason game against Minnesota on Aug. 9 because of undisclosed reasons, but coach Sean Payton said during his Monday conference call that he feels Anzalone should be back shortly.
"We feel like Alex is going to be healthy for the start of the season," Payton said.

The third-year pro started in seven of the Saints' 16 regular season games last year, hauling in an interception, two passes defended, three forced fumbles, two sacks, 59 tackles, three tackles for loss and six quarterback hits.
Anzalone started in the Saints' preseason game against the Vikings totaling one tackle during his eight plays. Despite not playing for the rest of the preseason, he did make the trip to Los Angeles.

W.T. Sherman is my favorite General. After all he did order Atlanta to be burned to the ground.

That's terrific news.

Alex made so many key plays last year to turn momentum in games.

Terrific news.

That's the recent Payton. He doesn't put players out there with even minor nicks if he already knows they'll be front line players once the season starts.

The 7 they mentioned were his "starts." He didn't miss a game last year I don't think.
