Saints WR Morgan looks to rebound from knee injury

METAIRIE, La. (AP) - New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Morgan knows he will have to wait a little longer to prove he has fully recovered from the torn anterior cruciate ligament that wiped out his 2013 season.

Unable to practice in minicamp, he expects to be ready for the start of training camp in late July. Meanwhile, he is dealing with the frustration of watching his teammates compete on the field while he watches from the sideline.

After averaging an eye-popping 37.9 yards on 10 catches in 2012, he thought his role would increase last year. Instead, his year ended during an early August scrimmage.

Morgan says the most frustrating thing was the injury happened before a preseason game. He says he has to "just have to focus on getting back healthy."
