First-Round Pick Ellis Out 3-4 Weeks After Surgery

The Saints will be without DE Sedrick Ellis for 3-4 weeks, as he had arthroscopic surgery to repair a tear in his right knee Friday morning.  He was the overall 7th pick in the draft, and was a starter on the D-line for the teams first four games.  He felt a “click” in his knee during practice on Thursday, and had it checked out.  It was determined that he tore the medial meniscus in his knee during the teams win over the Niners last Sunday.  Ellis has started all four games this season for the Saints (2-2), and racked up 11 tackles and one sack.

    Last week was a superb one for the Saints and I’m hoping they keep that up against the Vikings.

    Being a huge fan of Argentina, I’m happy to see Martin Gramatica has a team which he can play with. I was devastated when he was left out of Dallas last year.

    Last week he had a good game after missing a couple of field goal attempt in the previous one.

    By the way, I was inform that he was injured in the 49ers match. Will he be fit to play against the Vikings?

    Oh yes! You are most welcome to my blog. Please drop by and give some comment about Martin & the Saints. I would appreciate that very much.

    As we say…..
