METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) - Four days into camp, and a familiar face is on the Saints offensive line, Terron Armstead. For the first time, in a long time, he's healthy in July.
"I'm a whole lot better. This is my first (healthy) start in camp since '15. That's a great feeling, alone and to get those reps. I've been playing games without practice and practicing during games, so to be able to get that rust off, I have a lot of work to do. I am super rusty technique-wise, eyes, and hands, It's a ton of work. To be able to start it now, it will help me in the long run," said Terron Armstead.
Armstead may be a little rusty, but at least he's out there.
"It's been extremely frustrating these last two, three years. It's been extremely frustrating for my teammates, not being able to be out there for those guys and having the guys move around (positions to fill in). Football is what I love to do. I love to play, and I love to be out there, so it hurts me when I when I'm not able to. I'm looking to play every week. I am going to take it one day at a time, a game at a time, but of course I want to play every single day," said Armstead.
To combat his numerous injuries, Armstead has not only gone around the country for help, he's gone worldwide.
"Went to Germany for some injuries. To Minnesota, New York, back to Minnesota, back to New York, Dallas. Dr. Andrews in Florida. I've been pretty much everywhere," said a smiling Armstead.
