New Orleans Saints place safety Jairus Byrd on PUP

Posted Jul 25, 2014

Star safety expected back 'sooner rather than later'

New Orleans Saints

White Sulphur Springs, W. Va. - New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton announced Friday that the team has placed star safety Jairus Byrd on the PUP to start training camp.

Byrd, the team's top free-agent pickup this offseason, underwent back surgeru during the offseason.

Payton said to expect the ball-hawking safety back "sonner rather than later." Payton said he is ahead of schedule in his recovery.

The only other injury news of note was that receiver Kenny Stills left with a tight right quad that Payton said was not serious.
