Saints lose another tailback

With Mike Bell in Philly and Lynell Hamilton on injured reserve, the Saints can ill afford additional serious injuries to their running backs.

On Saturday night, they suffered another one.

P.J. Hill suffered an apparent triceps injury against the Texans, according to Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.  Hill has been waived/injured, and he’ll revert to the team’s IR list if not claimed by another team.

The Saints initially signed Hill as an undrafted free agent in 2009, and he rushed for 128 yards on 26 carries in the preseason.  The Redskins cut him in May, and the Saints claimed him off waivers.

The Saints have added DeShawn Wynn to a depth chart that currently features Pierre Thomas, Reggie Bush, Ladell Betts, and Chris Ivory.

    Get well PJ! Glad we’ve got depth…can’t wait to destroy the Queens in the season opener! TWO DAT!

    Get your paper bags ready! They will appear back on your heads soon enough.

    Wishful thinking huh? The Vikings looked AWESOME against the 49ers though. Ha!

    Once again Goontra…you keep telling us that and I know you really, really do believe that and I won’t take that from you. I’ll just say this; I’ll take a brown paper bag any day over the gay little horns you wear on your head every Sunday with nothing to show as a result. I’ve got a Lombardi Trophy with my old bags now…pretty cool actually.

    Right Contra, because we lost an RB who was competing to be our #3 and wasn’t even a lock to make the team, we’re going to have to put on the paper bags. You know us so well.

    Deshawn Wynn huh?
    He will be hurt before the season starts…I can almost guarantee it.
    This guy could never stay on the field in Green Bay…and many question his drive and work ethic.

    Taints should wear prison stripes. I suppose that wouldn’t work because in NO, the criminals work in LE or other public office. They actually elect crooks knowing they’re dirty as their oil soaked water. Remember, hit late, hit low, play dirty. It ain’t how you play the game, its getting the prize.

    So I was watching Gruden’s “Champ Camp” on ESPN earlier today, and I was intrigued by one of Sean Payton’s comments:
    “I went up to Brett before the NFC Championship game, but didn’t want to hug him because I had the flu. He told me to go over and hug Chilly…and give it to him”
    Haha…Vikings are a joke!

  9. 56chevygirl says: Aug 23, 2010 5:04 PM

    Ah, my friend, Contra (the village idiot)!! As scra22 pointed out PJ was playing for the #3 or 4 RB slot. Try commenting on something you know about.

    Don’t worry…he won’t make the team.

    ===========
    He’s one of three competing to be the #3 QB. Payton likes to have 4 RBs on the roster. If he doesn’t produce, he’ll get cut.

    Queen fans are so bitter its laughable. You guys are so desperate too…do you how ridiculous you look to the rest of the country? Think about it…you hang your gay little horn hats on a 41 year old qb who you hated for 16 years…now he’s your savior? You goons look so retarded and you don’t stand a chance in the Superdome 2 weeks from Thursday night!

  13. Who is Mike Jones says: Aug 23, 2010 5:07 PM

    They’re dropping like flies! When Loomis let Bell dart for Philly, he certainly didn’t see this situation. It’s life in the NFL. You’re stacked at HB one day and the injury bug strikes and now you’re considering which players to bring out of retirement.
    Hey Contra, I know you’ve got that keyboard and monitor and you can type whatever comes to mind but Saints fans aren’t wearing bags nowadays but word on the street has your team in shambles before you can take a bye week.

  14. SSgtLMJ says: Aug 23, 2010 5:10 PM

    I’m pretty sure Sean Payton is smarter and more situational savvy than both Childo and McCarthy combined…he’ll figure it out, count on it! You goons only wish you had a genius running your team…I mean come on, Childo is as retarded as the little horns you wear. Ask him if he can count to twelve…I bet he caaaannnnnn!

  15. PurplePeopleBeaters says: Aug 23, 2010 5:24 PM

    Chilly looks like he works at Old Navy or Dunkin Donuts with that dumb ass headset he wears.

  16. Boudin says: Aug 23, 2010 5:28 PM

    those are horns? i thought they were sperm. learn something new everyday…

    Just like taint fans love the owner that was ready to leave that shit hole town.

    Sam Lee: You are clearly a poorly educated idiot and not worthy of comment beyond that.

    SSgtLMJ get off your ‘gay little horns’ trip. its annoying to read over and over.

  20. JackDiesel says: Aug 23, 2010 5:55 PM

    Oh no! We lost a RB that wasn’t going to make the team! We’re screwed!
    Stay classy Viking fans, bunch of whiny bitches.

  21. goombar2 says: Aug 23, 2010 5:58 PM

    There’s one last dead ender viking fan that thinks they have a right to suit up against the Saints?
    You do realize we are talking about the Super Bowl champs, right? And after the stink bomb the queens dropped last night against the 9ers who weren’t featuring Gore, Davis, or Crabtree?
    All I can think is that all the pipes in vikeland are made out of lead and this guy is eating paint chips too.
    With the hit Favre took last night the last thing he wants is the Saints D on week one. Unless of ‘course, maybe his plan is to play one series in that one too?

  22. FMWarner says: Aug 23, 2010 6:11 PM

    The Minny fans are engaging in the longest-running episode of sour grapes I’ve ever seen (even longer than the one in Big D after 44-6 on the last week of the 2008 season.)
    In case anyone needs to be reminded…FIVE turnovers.

  23. mikemcsaint says: Aug 23, 2010 6:35 PM

    ErictheQueer, Are you another douche bag who believes everything he hears from the media? The same media you piss on when they write something you don’t like about your queens?
    Sam Lee, are you another pussy queens fan who doesn’t like it when your qb gets hit? It’s football. Are there no men left in Minnesota? All the whining and tears eventually have to stop.
    And the crying continues……….

  24. FriarBob says: Aug 23, 2010 6:45 PM

    Leaving aside all the understandable trash talk above… the original report is still not accurate. The Saints can easily afford to lose to injury as many RBs as they want, so long as the injured RB is somebody who already was — or was about to be demoted to — 4th or 5th place on the depth chart. So far, this has been the case. Hamilton was doing OK but not great, and was already in grave danger of being passed by Ivory before he got hurt. Hill, though decent, wasn’t giving Ivory a serious run for the money. And we still don’t even know what Betts can do (if anything).
    Now if PT or Bush go down, that’s another matter. And Ivory isn’t too far behind given how well he’s done so far this preseason. But if Wynn or Betts are the next to go down, the only concern we’ll feel is personal sympathy for the guy who got hurt. That’s it.

    If I cross dressed with purple and pig tails I think that I would be asking for a bag to cover my face at the door to the stadium.

    CAMP BODY FOR THE 4TH PRE-SEASON GAME..NO BIG DEAL,PT,AND REGGIE WILL NOT PLAY IN THAT GAME

  27. INTENSEG says: Aug 23, 2010 9:01 PM

    The Saints will be whooping a lot of whiny SORRY Viking ass on Sept. 9th. So you crappy Vikings fans better have big enough paper bags to put over your gay ass horns.

  28. SSgtLMJ says: Aug 23, 2010 9:25 PM

    Eric the gay purple clown: the owner just signed on for another 25 years and he did it before we beat your asses and won the super bowl…get a clue moron!
    Tig O Bitties: You’re right, I need to get off the ‘gay little horns’ kick…but its so hard dude. Viqueens just look like 9 year olds at disney world with those things on…my bad though, I’ll try to stop…VIQUEEEEEEEENNNNNsSS and their GAYYY LITttTTTTTLE HOORRRRNNNNNS!! LMAO!!

  29. Smitty Gill says: Aug 23, 2010 10:18 PM

    Four and out………………….To the 49ers
