Saints lose OLB Martez Wilson for 4 weeks

Saints OLB Martez Wilson bruised his bicep and will be out for four weeks.

Day four of the New Orleans Saints' training camp ended with two losses -- one short term, one a bit more costly.

Wilson banged his left arm off safety Rafael Bush's helmet trying to make a play on running back Travaris Cadet during practice Monday. Wilson went down holding the arm.


Wilson bruised his bicep and likely will be out for the next four weeks.


He tweeted out this message to the Saints nation:




The Saints' new 3-4 defense also lost outside linebacker Victor Butler to a torn ACL during organized team activities in the offseason.
