Day 9 of training camp for the New Orleans Saints was a strong one today as the offense rebounded from a couple of off days however, it came with a slew of injuries including some unfortunate news for RB Eno Benjamin.

Per multiple sources, Benjamin endured the rupturing of his Achilles in today’s practice, likely ending his season.

Benjamin was a long shot for snaps this year as the Saints have added mightily to the running back room but there were still opportunities on special teams and in the case of injuries where Benjamin would have been great depth.

Sad news overall for the player, hope he is able to bounce back rather quickly.
