Saints looking for another running back
Question of the Day
Ivory, who has earned Payton’s praise more than once in training camp, faced long odds when he signed with the Saints. He rushed for 534 yards in three injury-filled seasons with Washington State, then transferred to Division II Tiffin University in his senior year.
He gained 227 yards in five games with Tiffin, which went 0-11, before a leg injury sidelined him again.
“He carries his pads well,” Payton said. “He has good speed, and he’s big and put well together.”
Ivory carried six times for 30 yards with a 2-yard score against New England.
“I feel like I have the opportunity to play,” he said. “That’s why I came here. If (Thomas) came in as a free agent, I know I can do it, too. I think I have a good shot.”
Notes: Backup free safety Usama Young sat out Sunday’s practice with a groin injury. Payton said it was unclear when he would return or whether the injury was related to the sports hernia surgery Young had in December. … The best play of Sunday’s practice came on a 35-yard pass from Drew Brees to tight end Jeremy Shockey near the goal line. But backup safety Chris Reis, who was beaten despite having tight coverage, insisted Shockey did not get his feet inbounds. Rookie cornerback Patrick Robinson, a first-round draft pick, had two interceptions a day after defensive coordinator Gregg Williams criticized him. “Patrick has a lot of skill but right now he doesn’t know how to play,” Williams said. “Right now I don’t have any trust in him. He has to take the next step up in pro football. He’s had too much down time and he doesn’t know how to take care of his body.”
