New Orleans Saints Updates: RB Chris Ivory And S Darren Sharper

There are some recent updates on two players that New Orleans Saints fans are starting to ask about which are, RB Chris Ivory and S Darren Sharper.

After practice this evening, Head Coach Sean Payton informed the media that Ivory had sports hernia surgery today in Philadelphia.  Coach Payton stated it was a “clean tear” and recovery time should be around three weeks.

Ivory has also been recovering from Lisfranc surgery on his foot.  Coach Payton stated that Ivory has been having pain and discomfort from both injuries.  Ivory has been absent from the last two practices.

NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora tweeted today about S Darren Sharper’s future.  According to LaCanfora, at least two teams have shown interest in Sharper and he is weighing his options.

The Saints are apparently still interested but Sharper has said several times that he wants a good chunk of playing time and not a backup role.  Safety Malcolm Jenkins took over at free safety last season as Sharper recovered from knee surgery.  Jenkins is widely accepted as the starter for the position this season as well.
