Well, we knew there was no way Jeremy Shockey would start every game of the season.
The NFL Network has just reported that the Shockmeister will not be playing for the Saints in their matchup against the Cowboys tonight. Shockey is suffering from turf toe, which sidelined him last week during the Falcons game.
Not good news for Saints fans. Turf toe is tough to recover from and, like groin injuries, can really be nagging. Hopefully it's not serious, otherwise he may never be 100% for the rest of the year.
Regardless, the Saints will march on with the rest of their talented group of offensive weapons. Like possession receiver Lance Moore, who finally returns tonight after being out with injury for most of the season. Shockey's absence will mean Moore might get more work tonight than he anticipated in his first game back.
