Saints News, 6/16/15: Junior Galette Won't Require Pectoral Surgery

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: Junior Galette won't need surgery for his pectoral injury, a source confirmed to ESPN, which means the New Orleans Saints' top pass-rusher might be healthy in time for the start of the regular season. Galette met with Dr. James Andrews on Monday and learned he'll just need rest and rehab for the injury, which he suffered while lifting weights earlier in the month, according to the source.
