As the Saints ramp up the intensity during training camp practices, a few battle scars are beginning to show.
Linebacker Curtis Lofton took Tuesday off with a sore back, and his comrade Jonathan Vilma is sporting stitches on the bridge of his nose after a head-on collision Monday with one of the Black and Gold's running backs.
"This actually came from Mark Ingram on 9-on-7," Vilma said, explaining why he was limited during Tuesday's practice.
Number 22 was not immediately aware of the damage he caused to Vilma's face.
"I didn't know, but I saw Jed [Collins] had some blood on his helmet and he was like 'Who's it coming from!?'" said Ingram. "Then I saw Vilma looking like Avatar with a strip on his nose, so I guess I put a couple stitches in him, but it was just a good collision. He needs to get his helmet fitted better," smiled Ingram.
Perhaps the Saints linebacker corps needs to take precautions when going against Ingram. Victor Butler tore his ACL earlier this summer in OTA's after he collided with Ingram.
