Saints hold first scrimmage of fall camp
Metairie, La- The Saints defense brought plenty of pressure in the team's first scrimmage of fall camp. Rex Ryan's 3-4 scheme had players flying to the football, forcing 3 turnovers and recording 5 sacks. Sean Payton said he was pleased with the tempo of practice.
As far as the offense, a few bright spots. Mark Ingram capped off a drive with a 1 yard touchdown run and rookie Ryan Griffin found fullback Austin Johnson for a long touchdown pass. The Saints will take Sunday off and return to practice Monday.
