Saints News, 9/15/16: Ellerbe, Hill Still Held Out of Practice

New, comments

With Delvin Breaux obviously missing significant time, the Saints do have other injuries to account for. LB Dannell Ellerbe and TE Josh Hill both missed practice, and LT Terron Armstead saw limited participation. With Hill's injury, the Saints will have to find ways to get Coby Fleener better acclimated, while LB Craig Robertson proved to be a solid stopgap for the injured Ellerbe.
