The Saints practices in Oxnard are almost over. After Sunday, the Saints will pack up and head back home to New Orleans, where the Saints will play their final preseason game against the Tennessee Titans. Even though the Saints might want to come back to California in the future, one writer is upset with the Saints for even thinking of this.
In injury news, Roman Harper had a finger issue today, while Mark Ingram returned to the field, and Carl Nicks stayed on the sideline. Joe Morgan is out for 2-4 weeks with a knee issue (another knee issue?), and even Lance Moore is getting in on the injuries with a groin issue.
