Saints News 6/29/13: Sean Payton Injures Leg While Exercising

New, comments

Check the top tweet for the goods on Payton. It's not as bad as the 2011 leg injury. Sorry this is late, folks. I was having internet connectivity issues earlier today, and then my grandson showed up for his play date with me and Mrs. H!!! Enjoy the Walterfootball.com offseason Saints goodies...

I expect to be a full go tomorrow, but we may hold me out just as a precaution.
