Saints linebacker Wilson is out for four weeks with injury

New Orleans, La. -

At least one Saints player, wide receiver Saliim Akiem, and one coach had to be treated for damage done by the heat Monday. But linebacker Martez Wilson had a separate and more serious issue.

Even with pads, you can't protect everything. Wilson banged his left arm off Rafael Bush's helmet, trying to make a play on Traveris Cadet. Wilson went down holding the arm. He confirms he suffered a bruised biceps, and expects to be out about four weeks.

Martez also tweeted: Thanks saint fans for the support. With rehab and time I will be back out there soon. #whodat#

Day five of training camp happens Tuesday morning. The gates in Metairie open at 8 a.m., and the session is open to the public, weather permitting.
