Keenan Lewis, Junior Galette, Terron Armstead among injured Saints

12/8/2014

METAIRIE, La. -- Lost in the aftermath of the New Orleans Saints' dreadful 41-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday were a handful of injuries to key players during the game.

Cornerback Keenan Lewis (cramps), outside linebacker Junior Galette (leg), left tackle Terron Armstead (neck), center Jonathan Goodwin (leg) and receiver Nick Toon (unknown) all left the game at some point.

Goodwin said Monday morning that he'll be alright and just got kicked in the knee. We might not get any other updates on the injuries until the Saints return to practice on Thursday. But there is reason to hope that most of them are minor.

Galette returned to the game briefly in the third quarter, but he was noticeably hobbling down the field after running back Fozzy Whittaker during his 26-yard touchdown reception. And it didn’t appear as though Galette played again after that.

Lewis also did not appear to return after heading into the locker room in the third quarter, but if it was indeed just a cramping issue, he should be back for next Monday night’s game against the Chicago Bears.

Armstead did not appear to play in the second half after he left the game early in the first half. But he was still suited up on the bench in the second half.

Meanwhile, running back Khiry Robinson played in only two offensive snaps in his return from an arm injury with no touches. It’s likely that Robinson would have seen more action if the game had played out differently. But their running backs only ran the ball 16 times in the blowout loss.
