Toon was playing well in training camp and the preseason.
The Saints are hiding out from Hurricane Isaac up in Cincinnati, and they are scheduled to conclude their preseason tomorrow night as they face the Titans in Nashville. The starters are not expected to play much, and some keys players (Graham, Sproles, Lofton, Brees etc...) won't play at all.

Nick Toon, the son of former NFL WR Al Toon, has been sidelined with a left foot injury since Aug. 2. The Saints say he might be back next week, but he had problems with the same foot at Wisconsin, missing all of spring drills after surgery in 2011 and one game last fall plus the Senior Bowl due to issues with scar tissue.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune says that 4th round rookie Nick Toon has a good chance to win the #4 receiver job, a competition that the New Orleans Times-Picayune predicted would be a heated one earlier in the week.

Saints rookie receiver Nick Toon is wearing No. 88, just as his All-Pro father, Al, did for the New York Jets.
Although his parents never pressured him to play football - and even forbid him to play until seventh grade - the younger Toon has thrived playing the same position his father did through high school and in college at Wisconsin.

New Orleans Saints rookie Nick Toon might not be the fastest receiver on the field but at 6’2, 215 lbs his features are just what the Saints look for. The former University of Wisconsin receiver has the NFL in his genes. His father, Al Toon, played for the New York Jets from 1985 to 1992. In

The New Orleans Saints selected wide receiver Nick Toon in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
Toon is smooth as silk as a route runner with sharp instincts and reliable hands. He comes from good stock as his father was Jets star Al Toon, and he projects as a good fit in the Saints aerial attack, and will cushion the loss of Robert Meachem. Strong fantasy upside...
