July 28, 2012; Metairie, LA, USA; New Orleans Saints rookie wide receiver Nick Toon (88) during a training camp practice at the team

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Nick Toon injured in practice; severity unknown

The New Orleans Saints were doing fairly well with injuries so far in camp until the beginning of this week.  However they have begun to hit players at all positions and it seems that the wide receiver corps took one today.

Fourth round pick Nick Toon suffered what one media source says may have been a twisted ankle while making a beautiful touchdown catch during drills this morning.

Toon was seen with a noticeable limp as he walked away from the practice field with a trainer towards the locker room to look at the injury.  He did not return.

After practice interim head coach Joe Vitt said that Toon was being “evaluated” and as customary didn’t speculate on the severity of it with reporters.

This could stall Toon if he has to sit out for several practices since he’s in a race to help fill one of the vacant wide receiver positions.  Also if he doesn’t return this week, he probably wouldn’t participate in the upcoming Hall of Fame game on Sunday.

A setback for sure on Toon’s part since he had been having up and down days last week and was finally coming into his own groove and being consistent going into this week.
