Heath Evans is "ahead of schedule", according to Saints coach Sean Payton. It sounds like he'll be pretty close to 100% by training camp and good to go for week 1 against the Vikings. Don't forget the Saints also added fullback Jason McKie as insurance for Evans in case he's not ready to go. Hopefully the Saints' running game will be in great shape by week 1. The Saints ran for around 35 yards less per game last year with Evans out of the lineup. He's an integral part of the team, and a useful weapon at times as a security valve in the passing game.
Nice to see!
