Saints Training Camp: Notes and Observations from Day 19 – Sports Illustrated

It’s hard to think that we have just two more Saints training camp practices that we’ll be able to see before getting into Week 1 of the regular season. There’s plenty of things the team will need to get answers on on Friday against the Chargers, and things seem like they are coming together more and more. Here’s a look at all our notes and observations from Tuesday’s indoor practice.

TRAINING CAMP RECAPS: Day 18 | Day 17 (Superdome) | Day 16 (Green Bay) | Day 15 (Green Bay) | Day 14 | Day 13 | Day 12 | Day 11 | Day 10 | Day 9 | Day 8 | Day 7 | Day 6 | Day 5 | Day 4 | Day 3 | Day 2 | Day 1

ATTENDANCE: Taysom Hill and Taco Charlton both returned to practice on Tuesday, but the Saints were still down 14 players. Among those not spotted included Tre’Quan Smith, Michael Thomas, Kevin White, Marshon Lattimore, Dwayne Washington, P.J. Williams, Alontae Taylor, Chase Hansen, Cesar Ruiz, Landon Young, Ryan Ramczyk, James Hurst, Adam Trautman, and Carl Granderson. Pete Werner was doing work off to the side.

NICKS AND BRUISES: Dennis Allen said after practice that several of the players are dealing with ‘nicks and bruises’ on the offensive line that the team is working through, so some of these absences shouldn’t be a big cause for concern. Josh Andrews got dinged up during practice, but returned. Tony Jones Jr. also did, left, and then came back to do some individual work off to the side. Both Calvin Throckmorton and Andrus Peat also had small dings, but remained on the field and practiced.

ENCOURAGING SIGN: Marcus Davenport and Jameis Winston both took part in all team drills today, which was a huge step forward for both. Winston even took off in some of his reps for scrambles, something we haven’t really seen. Dennis Allen said they’ll probably have discussions on Wednesday evening regarding preseason reps against the Chargers.

WALKTHROUGHS: The Saints rolled out another nickel look today, with Cam Jordan, Shy Tuttle, David Onyemata, and Payton Turner anchoring the defensive line. Nephi Sewell worked alongside Demario Davis at linebacker, with C.J. Gardner-Johnson in the slot. Paulson Adebo and Bradley Roby were at corner, and Tyrann Mathieu and Marcus Maye were at safety. Subs included Eric Wilson, Jon Bostic, J.T. Gray, Malcolm Roach, Tanoh Kpassagnon, Taco Charlton, and Kentavius Street.

On offense, the Saints had an offensive line of Trevor Penning, Andrus Peat, Erik McCoy, Calvin Throckmorton, and Lewis Kidd. Subs and rotational players included Chris Olave, Deonte Harty, Alvin Kamara, Nick Vannett, Juwan Johnson, Jarvis Landry, Marquez Callaway, Adam Prentice, Taysom Hill, and Mark Ingram.

7-ON-7: Jameis Winston and Andy Dalton took all reps in 7-on-7, and they both went 4-of-5 in each of their series operating in the red zone. 

Winston hit a pass to Alvin Kamara in the flats to start, and then connected on a 15-yard wheel route to him for the score working against Nephi Sewell. Sewell had good coverage on the play, it was just a great throw from Winston. Bradley Roby had a pass breakup on a curl route to Marquez Callaway on the next play, and then Winston had back-to-back touchdown passes to Chris Olave on a curl from the 6-yard-line and Jarvis Landry on a crossing route from the 4-yard-line. The Landry hookup was a great throw in tight coverage from Eric Wilson.

Dalton hit Kirk Merritt in the flats on his first passing attempt, and then found Dai’Jean Dixon on …….
