Saints LB Junior Galette hopes to be ready for preseason
by Sean d'Oliveira |

Despite recently suffering a pectoral injury, which kept him from practicing, Saints linebacker Junior Galette said he hopes to be able to play during the preseason, reports The Times-Picayune.

Galette recently sustained a left pectoral injury while lifting weights, but he hopes by not having surgery that he'll be able to come back sooner.

"Everybody's different. You can have a torn pec, and you can come back sooner than I am, and we could be doing the same rehab," Galette said. "Every one's different. Hopefully, we'll shoot for the preseason, but we'll see."

Saints' Anthony Spencer works ahead of Junior Galette Thursday
by R.J. White |

Saints linebacker Anthony Spencer worked ahead of Junior Galette in the team's base 4-3 defense, a run-heavy look that featured just three linebackers, reports.

"However it came out, we’re not worried about depth chart now," defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said. "We’re putting in a defense, we’re all working hard together and getting to know each other, our teammates and what we got. But I know both those guys can play, so we’re excited about 'em."

Spencer had a career-high 11 sacks in 2012 but has managed just 24 total tackles and a half-sack in 14 games over the last two years while dealing with a major knee injury.

"I think sometimes there are tougher positions to evaluate at this time of year," coach Sean Payton said, when asked to give his early thoughts on Spencer. "But I think, No. 1, he can affect the passer. ... He’s an edge player, I think he’s very good at fitting the run, and I think he can affect the passer."
