Saints Training Camp Recap, Day 10: DE Kenyon Coleman Leaves Practice With Chest Injury

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

Coach Payton would not elaborate on the extent of the injury and only said he would give an update once he learns more. Larry Holder tweeted that Coleman slammed down his helmet in frustration right before exiting the field. That sounds like someone who's upset because he knows he just sustained a pretty significant injury. I hope that's not the case because injuries to starting defensive linemen are starting to pile up.
