LT Jammal Brown Hurt During Tuesday’s Practice


In what could be a huge injury for the Saints, starting left tackle Jammal Brown was hurt Tuesday during practice and had to be carted off the field.  It looked as if the injury took place to his right knee, and happened during a contact drill.  The team had a tougher practice put on them by coach Sean Payton after the team had a poor showing against the Steelers in the Hall of Fame game on Sunday night in Canton, Ohio.

Brown stayed on the ground for about 20 minutes before the cart and some trainers left the field.  Brown was drafted in the first round out of Oklahoma, 13th overall, back in 2005. He was the starter at right tackle as a rookie and then was moved to left tackle last season, when he was selected for the Pro Bowl.  At 6-foot-6, 313 pounds, he is a force on the Saints line, a line that did a solid job last year opening holes for Reggie Bush and Deuce McCallister. The Saints offensive line that allowed only 23 sacks in 2006, fourth lowest in the league.  Brown is a big part of that, starting 15 games last season.  In his rookie season he started 13 games.
