Saints News 9/18/13: Saints Place CB Patrick Robinson On Season-Ending Injured Reserve

After seeing the game Sunday and seeing medical staff wrap Robinson's leg in an air cast and wheel him away, this is no surprise. I sincerely feel for him and think he was looking much improved in Rob Ryan's new scheme. Coach Payton wouldn't go into a lot of detail on his injury other than saying he will be able to fully rehab and heal after surgery. Best wishes to Robinson for a full and speedy recovery. In other news, Mark Ingram (toe), Jahri Evans (back), and Roman Harper (knee) are among several Saints players who did not practice today.
