Saints Training Camp Links 7/26/13: Marques Colston Starts Camp on PUP List

New, comments

Coach Payton (it feels so great to type that again during a training camp!) says Colston has a foot injury that the team plans to rest for a few days. Roman Harper did not start camp on the PUP list as many expected he would. He practiced on a limited basis. Lots of links and video below detailing today's training camp session.
