Saints Wednesday Injury Report: Khiry Robinson Still Out

New, comments

The Wednesday injury report is out and still no official word on Brodrick Bunkley. After five weeks of inaction Khiry Robinson still does not practice.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

When asked about Brodrick Bunkley's status, Sean Payton said he should know more tomorrow. The fact that Sean even answered the question about Broderick says a lot. Also it's reported that they have signed former Georgia DE, Garrison Smith to the practice squad.

From NFL.Com's 2014Draft Profile/Garrison Smith

OVERVIEW

2013: Started in all 13 games he played in. Had 63 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and six sacks. 2012: Played in 14 games, making eight starts. Totaled 57 tackles, two tackles for loss and a fumble recovery. 2011: Played in 14 games with two starts, making 22 tackles and three tackles for loss. 2010: Appeared in seven games.

ANALYSIS

STRENGTHS

Versatile -- lined up as a three-technique, played some nose tackle and base end. Flashes some strength and agility to keep working to come free.

WEAKNESSES

Short, squatty and undersized. Marginal athletic ability. Makes few plays laterally and is late to arrive. Struggles to control blockers. Is late to locate the ball -- does not feel blocking pressure and stays blocked. Motor runs hot and cold. Very limited closing speed. Minimal pass-rush potential.

DRAFT PROJECTION

Priority free agent

BOTTOM LINE

Tough, try-hard, slow-footed plodder. Make plays at him, but does not distinguish his play in any way. Offers some versatility and will have to fend for a job in a rotation.
