METAIRIE, La. -- Saints tight end Dan Campbell will have knee surgery Monday, but is expected to be back in time for the start of training camp.

Coach Sean Payton said Campbell will have arthroscopic surgery to repair damage to his medial collateral ligament. Campbell will miss the rest of the team's organized activities. Campbell wasn't the only tight end injured in Friday's minicamp. Darnell Dinkins sprained his ankle. Payton said he wasn't aware of the severity of Dinkins' injury.

In other injury news, linebacker Dan Morgan, who's coming out of retirement, strained a calf muscle early in the afternoon session and left practice. That might not come as a surprise to those who have followed Morgan's star-crossed career.
