New Orleans Saints Adrian Arrington hopeful to return by season opener


 

In the midst of training camp New Orleans Saints receiver Adrian Arrington was practicing with a painful knee injury. Little did he know that he had torn the meniscus cartilage in his right knee. Once the fourth-year receiver had an MRI performed it divulged into more of a serious situation.

After Arrington sought out a second opinion, it was later revealed that he did require surgery to repair any damage he had attained. On Monday, Arrington spoke out about his injury for the first time since having the repair work done and had this to share,

“It’s always important to be out there. But I think I’ve been out there enough the past few years where they know the things I can do. Now it’s just a matter of getting healthy.”

Prior to the knee injury, receiver Arrington was having a proficient showcase during the training sessions. Signs indicated that he would have been in the fourth receiving position behind Marques Colston, Lance Moore and Devery Henderson.

Arrington’s reappearance is still a matter time. In the meanwhile, he is encouraging towards those younger players duking it out for a chance on the roster. Although Arrington has yet to workout his injury, he is plenty optimistic about his return by September 9th.
