July 29, 2012; Metairie, LA, USA; New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham (80) makes a catch during a training camp practice at the team

The injury bug is biting several teams hard in the past few weeks and although the New Orleans Saints managed to shoo it away for a while, the pest is back.

Realistically, it’s rare that any team ever make a full preseason or regular season itself before succumbing to a few bumps and bruises.  Training camp is the most common for players that are brand new or their bodies can’t take it.  Sometimes it’s just bad luck in the end that does it.

In two weeks of practice the team was hit with the loss of two starting cornerbacks, Jabari Greer and Patrick Robinson.  Greer required sports hernia surgery and Robinson injured his shoulder defending a pass to wide receiver Adrian Arrington.

Greer most likely won’t play the rest of the preseason but is reportedly going to be ready by the start of the regular season.  Robinson is being brought back slowly and won’t play in the next preseason game against the New England Patriots.

On the subject of Arrington, he injured his knee last Friday and was unable to participate in the Hall of Fame Game on Sunday night.  His issue seems to be with his meniscus and is currently getting a “second opinion” on the status of it.

With the other wide receivers, Devery Henderson didn’t practice in team drills due to an ankle injury and coveted fourth round pick Nick Toon is also nursing a similar injury as well.

    …Graham’s back issue. Any updates?

    James C. Morse: He seemed to be fine a few minutes after stretching the injury. But, don’t be surprised if he’s limited in reps or held out of the Patriots game tonight.
