METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

Injuries left the Saints secondary with plenty of unknowns.

Keenan Lewis trying to come back from knee, hip and sports hernia injuries and surgery, Damian Swann trying to bounce back from multiple concussions last season and then there's P.J. Williams, who suffered his first major injury, a torn ACL before he even played in his first NFL game.

Turn the page to present day and Williams is back to near 100 percent health and anxious to remind the coaching staff that the cornerback cupboard isn't so bare.

"I feel like I'm good with the speed, I'm running good and I'm doing a lot of good things so I'm just definitely looking to tweak a few things, little things and get better", said Williams. "I was in all the meetings all year so I definitely learned a whole lot, just learning where I need to be at times, knowing where my help is and how to play to my help and things like that and just being able to compete, watching those guys and just learning a lot of things from the players."

Williams is expected to see the majority of his playing time in nickel and dime situations.

Saints Mini-camp is open to the public Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until 1:20 p.m. Gates open at 10:15 am. If it rains, however, practice will be moved inside and closed off to the public.

    Today's work was much lighter between the Saints and Chargers was much lighter. They wore no pads only shells and helmets, and they only practiced two hours instead of two and a half like Thursday. While they certainly weren't perfect, overall the Saints had much better execution today than Thursday.  "I thought overall it was a little bit crisper today than yesterday.
