Turner was signed by the Saints earlier this week.

Less than three days after the Louisiana-native was signed by his hometown team, the injury bug reached up and snatched offensive guard Trai Turner.

According to reporter Brooke Kirchhofer, Turner went down during a 1v1 drill during Friday’s training camp practice. His leg “twisted up” and was promptly carted off the field.

Carting injured players off the field is a precaution that is seen far more often in training camp than the regular season. We saw this with Joe Burrow yesterday, who ended up having just a minor calf strain when many feared a torn Achilles.

However, this will certainly be a setback for the nine-year veteran. His recent arrival met with an immediate injury will likely challenge his assimilation into the offensive line unit.

Hopefully, this is a minor injury, and we can see a healthy Turner for week one when we see the New Orleans Saints take on the Tennessee Titans on Sept. 10.
