Found July 30, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
New Orleans Saints linebacker Martez Wilson will miss two to four weeks as the result of a left elbow injury, according to Larry Holder of NOLA.com. Wilson exited yesterday’s practice session after trying to make a tackle in the backfield. He left the field with a trainer holding his left arm. Holder notes that the linebacker will be missing critical time during training camp as New Orleans attempts to make the switch to the 3-4 defensive scheme. Still, Wilson is expected to return in time for the start of the regular season. Victor Butler’s season-ending ACL tear opened things up for Wilson to claim the Saints’ starting job at strongside outside linebacker. Saints head coach Sean Payton told reporters that Chase Thomas and Eric Martin will receive additional reps due to Wilson’s absence. "(Chase Thomas and Eric Martin) are getting their reps," Payton said. "We're going three groups right now, so a lot of these guys are getting plenty of work. At some point -- 2-3 weeks from now -- we'll reduce those reps." Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?

Is Drew Brees A Bad Tipper?
