After Further Review: Day 4 Recap

With arguably the hottest day thus far, the Saints worked through their fourth practice of training camp. The pace was solid throughout their near three-hour session.

But in the process, the team got some bad news when outside linebacker Martez Wilson left practice early after suffering an elbow injury. UPDATE: Wilson will be out four weeks.

I was able to watch some video of the play and it appeared Wilson reached his left arm to tackle Travaris Cadet and banged it against the crown of Rafael Bush's helmet as he was making the tackle.

Fortunately, it wasn't a big collision and Coach Sean Payton said he doesn't foresee it being a significant injury.

But it is certainly something to monitor. With Victor Butler out, behind Wilson the Saints have three rookies in Rufus Johnson, Chase Thomas and Eric Martin. I like all three but I don't think they were counting on all of them to contribute right away.

Play of the Day I

Malcolm Jenkins forced the first turnover in team drills since opening day when he made a diving interception of a Drew Brees' pass intended for Lance Moore.

Play of the Day II

Speaking of undrafted rookie Eric Martin, he continues to make plays. He provided the hit of camp thus far when he popped Cadet on a screen pass.

Other Observations

-         For the first time in camp, Seneca Wallace was with the second team at quarterback.

-         Mark Ingram dropped a pass during 7-on-7 drills and immediately dropped down and hit did some push-ups. Later in team drills he made an acrobatic catch on a Brees scramble.

-         For most of team drills, Chase Thomas and Wilson were with the second team at outside linebacker. Up until Monday, Wilson had been paired with Martin.

-         Wide receiver Saalim Hakim fell victim to cramps and had to be carted off the field. He should be fine moving forward.
