Darren Sharper and Clint Ingram Placed on PUP List; Will Miss First Six Regular Season Games

Brian Allee-Walsh of NewOrleans.com has reported that Darren Sharper and Clint Ingram have both been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, meaning they will not be able to play in the first six regular season games for the New Orleans Saints, regardless of whether they recover from their injury before that time. 

Of all the news we have received the last few weeks, I have to say the Sharper update is the most worrisome. Sharper and his myriad interceptions and pick six's were crucial in a few of the Saints victories last season. Without them, this defense will really need to step up their play to ensure a strong start to the season. 

After all the trash talking and tweeting he did against the Vikings, I have to say I'm now a little disappointed in Sharper. If he knew there was even the remote possibility that he would not be ready by week one, he should have simply kept his mouth shut. Just my personal opinion. 

Malcolm Jenkins is expected to get the start at free safety in place of Sharper, which also has me shaking in my tube socks.
