A few days ago, New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton revealed some information about running back Chris Ivory which is great news for his fans.
In a press conference on Monday, Payton commented that Ivory was “100 percent” and was “in great shape right now.” Payton also expressed that Ivory has been training hard to get back on the field.
Ivory has been on the Saints Physicaly Unable to Perform or PUP list, as it’s called. Ivory suffered a Lisfranc fracture in his foot in Week 16 of last season.
The injury came at a bad time for Ivory who was the team’s main running back at that time. It was also a bad time for the Saints who could have used him in their loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the Wild Card Playoff game.
The most encouraging news is that Payton said that Ivory could have actually played last Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars if he hadn’t been on the PUP list.
News on Ivory’s rehabilitation has been slim up to this point and it’s good to know that since everyone was disappointed when he was placed on the PUP list at the start of the season.
