Practice 1/21, Day 19, Training Camp Observations
LB Jonathan Casillas missed practice Tuesday to rest a shoulder that he said he had surgery on in the offseason. Head Coach Sean Payton said it wasn't serious.
FS Usama Young (groin) missed practice once again, as did FB Marcus Mailei (ankle), TE Jimmy Graham (sprained right ankle) and LB Stanley Arnoux.
The other two PUP players S Darren Sharper (left knee) and LB Clint Ingram (left knee) both continued to sit out practice and weren't on the field at all.
CB Patrick Robinson was back receiving kickoffs this morning. He dropped one, picked up the ball and threw it against the wall in the back of the end zone.
LB Scott Shanle was working at strongside linebacker with LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar taking over at weakside with Casillas out.
