Saints say Morgan seeks “second opinion”

Joe Morgan SaintsThe Saints may have suffered their most significant injury of training camp.

Head coach Sean Payton said wide receiver Joe Morgan has a knee injury. The club will not say what it is until Morgan gets a second opinion. Morgan was injured in Saturday’s scrimmage at the Saints facility.

The Saints moved quickly to bolster their receiving corp. The team re-signed Brett Leonard and signed veteran wide out Steve Breaston. Payton said the Saints also waived injured wide receiver Chris Givens.

Payton said Breaston “is a guy that can run and he’s had a lot of snaps in this league.”

The Saints also cut kicker Jose Maltos. Wide receiver Marques Colston and cornerback Patrick Robinson also practiced for the first time in camp. Both started camp on the physically unable to perform.
