Things are pretty quiet on the news front as the NFL enters into the deep abyss of nothingness until training camps start up in July, the Saints in late July.
The only notable news out of New Orleans is on the injury front as it has been reported that wide receiver Devery Henderson suffered a sports hernia injury last week.
Also the Saints agreed to terms with former starting outside linebacker for the Jacksonville Jaguars Clint Ingram earlier this week.
Ingram departs Jacksonville on the heels of two disappointing and injury riddled seasons but will get a chance to compete for Scott Fujita’s old job with the Saints.
Henderson joins a growing list of Saints to have suffered the injury including most recently right tackle Jon Stinchcomb, the Saints attribute the rise in sports hernia’s to new technology and procedures that make it easier to diagnose.
Let’s hope that is the case and that the team can get healthy and remain healthy before the start of the regular season.
