NEW ORLEANS (AP) -Saints defensive tackle Brian Young fractured a foot while doing some offseason training on his own in Florida and will likely miss the opening practices of training camp.
General manager Mickey Loomis said Young, 30, had surgery on the foot last week but could not say when the lineman would be able to return to practice. Loomis did not specify which foot was involved.
The Saints' backups at Young's spot include Kendrick Clancy, Antwan Lake and Rodney Leisle. Leisle started during Hollis Thomas' suspension late last season.
Young and special teams leader Steve Gleason, who in June had an operation known as a microfracture performed on his right knee, are the only players expected to be sidelines when the Saints hold their first practice of training camp on July 27 at Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss.
Gleason, also a reserve safety, is expected to return in the second or third week of training camp.
