<span>New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton announced today following the team's joint practice with the Houston Texans that defensive tackle Hollis Thomas suffered a torn triceps injury yesterday morning during one-on-one pass rush drills.
Payton said that the injury could sideline the veteran up to two months. Thomas had an MRI yesterday afternoon and underwent surgery this morning to repair the muscle.
"It's tough news to hear," said defensive tackle Brian Young. "These things happen, though, and while it's always hard to see a teammate and someone as likeable as Hollis get hurt, we know that we have the talent to keep going. We have some really good depth at the position and a good mix of older players and younger players and I think that we'll be okay."
