Sucks to see a good guy get hurt. Glad that it'll free up a spot for the you youngsters. We're pretty thin at OLB though.

No news what kind of knee injury though, huh? He walked off under his own power, so I didn't think it would be THIS bad. While I know he's been much maligned, he's looked good during preseason.

Like FLOOD said, Saints are dangerously thin at OLB now.

And I can definitely vouch for the ability to walk on your own power with a torn ACL. It hurts, but it's possible if you are careful

Tom Brady walked and even went down the stairs after his injury.

Not surprising. I had to make sure not to really rely on it to give stability when taking stairs, basically put it down first as if you tried to bend it going down your knee will give out, and going up it's the opposite and you use the strength in the other to be able to lift yourself up.
