As Saints training camp starts to pick up, the injuries (sadly) begin to pile up. Fortunately for us, the staff over at the Times-Pic is all over the injury situation on Airline Drive.
Most notable of the injuries is the one suffered by cornerback Patrick Robinson today:
New Orleans Saints starting cornerback Patrick Robinson injured his shoulder during Sunday afternoon's practice. He left the field and didn't return. Interim coach Joe Vitt said Robinson tweaked his shoulder and was brought inside the team practice facility for further evaluation.
Robinson is starter material and the Saints are dangerously thin at the cornerback position so this is bad news if serious.
Mark Ingram has also had some limitations thus far during training camp as well.
Running back Mark Ingram (toe, knee) was limited in Sunday's practice. He went through individual drills, but stood idle on the sidelines during any team portion of practice. This shouldn't be a surprise as Ingram's schedule thus far in training camp has been to fully practice one day and then practice on a limited basis the next day.
