“It’s not a hamstring or anything. He got his knee tweaked,” Payton said – which is an important distinction, since Lattimore dealt with significant injuries to each of his hamstrings early in his college career.
“I think he’ll be fine. It won’t be long,” Payton said of Lattimore, who was injured during Monday’s practice. The team then was off on Tuesday.
The Saints’ top cornerback, Delvin Breaux, also remained sidelined Wednesday with an unspecified injury – though he was in attendance watching from the side at the beginning of practice.
Meanwhile, offensive lineman Senio Kelemete made his training camp debut Wednesday after he was activated from the PUP list.
