JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -Saints starting linebacker Scott Fujita walked into the cafeteria at Millsaps College on crutches Wednesday afternoon following the team's return from a trip to an area water slide park.|
Fujita was not available for a formal interview, but as he waited for a plate of food, he said he was going to be fine and that nothing was broken.
He did not describe what happened before making his way to another room with Saints personnel, saying only that he ``had a little accident this morning.''
Fujita's foot was wrapped, but there was no brace on his leg, only an oversized sandal that fit over the wrapping.
Like last season, coach Sean Payton cut short a morning practice a little over a week into training camp and loaded the team onto buses bound for an area water park called Rapids on the Reservoir in Brandon, Miss.
The trip came after two long, hard practices on Tuesday, the Saints' first day back on the field since a 20-7 preseason loss to Pittsburgh in the Hall of Fame game on Sunday night.
Since training camp practices began on July 27, the Saints have labored through eight days of twice-a-day practices, all outdoors.
The team did not plan to make Payton or players available for interviews until after a practice slated for Wednesday afternoon.
