Notes and observations from the first day of training camp.

OVERVIEW: The Saints' first practice at UC Irvine was an abbreviated 90 minutes, as mandated by league rules. So the team portion of practice was minimal as they begin to ramp up their activities.


ATTENDANCE: TE Juwan Johnson (foot), DE Tanoh Kpassagnon (Achilles) LB Nephi Sewell (knee) did not practice. RB Kendre Miller (hamstring) and OT Justin Herron (knee) left early.

KAMARA IN FULL: Nobody really knew what to expect from Alvin Kamara on the first day of practice. Was he going to participate? Would there be an "injury"? And at first, it was hard to tell how things were going to go.

When Kamara first came out to practice, he didn’t have a jersey on and a few minutes after taking the field, he went up a set of steps and disappeared inside of the building. But when Kamara came back out, he did a quick equipment adjustment on his helmet and went to work.

Business as usual. Kamara ran hard throughout the practice and looked fast and explosive. He looked ready. And it doesn’t look like he’s going to approach anything with a bad attitude. The running back gave tips to younger players during individual drills and helped them get right when they needed to get right. ...

IRVINE, Calif — Alvin Kamara's explanation sounded simple enough.

The New Orleans Saints' star running back is practicing during his contract impasse with the club because he doesn't want to be fined or let down coaches and teammates who play no role in his salary negotiations.

“I ain't stupid. I ain't going to give no money up. I'm trying to get some money," Kamara said after the Saints' first practice of training camp on Wednesday.

“This happens all across the league,” Kamara continued. "I would be a fool to spite my teammates because of a dispute I'm having with (the front office)...

Cameron Jordan used to be the young guy in the room. Looking up to proven pros like Will Smith and Jonathan Vilma, and just hoping to make a name for himself, proving why the New Orleans Saints drafted him. But it’s been a long time since then. He’s going into Year 14 with the black and gold, and these days he’s being asked to step into the role of a mentor. There isn’t much that he hasn’t seen or done through 209 games with the Saints, and his younger teammates know it.

Jordan was busy between drills at Wednesday’s first training camp practice of the summer, offering words and examples...

New Orleans Saints RB Kendre Miller suffered a hamstring injury on day one of training camp, leaving practice early.

Right leg injuries have been frequent throughout Kendre Miller’s football career, and after missing nine games in his rookie season, exiting the first practice of training camp is certainly not ideal.

New Orleans Saints HC Dennis Allen didn't mince his words on the second year back:

The Saints aren’t short of ball carriers with Alvin Kamara, Jamaal Williams, and Taysom Hill on the roster, so this is a fairly significant statement from Allen on the former TCU running back...

The New Orleans Saints always deal with injuries pretty early into the process, and this offseason seems to be no different with injuries to Chase Young and Juwan Johnson during the offseason process or earlier. This trend seems to have continued as well, with second-year running back Kendre Miller suffering a hamstring injury during Wednesday’s training camp practice. According to Katherine Terrell of ESPN, he went into the training tent and did not return once that occurred.

Miller dealt with leg issues all of last season as a rookie. He missed time with a patella sprain, grade one...

New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara has been negotiating his current contract in hopes of getting more security down the road, and this has led to some questions about his status for the upcoming season. When he showed up to camp and did not hold out, it was a good sign that he would play or workout through these negotiations, but Wednesday Kamara dispelled the chance of a holdout altogether.

Kamara made his goal clear during Wednesday’s his media availability: “I want to be a Saint. I want to retire here.” He also went on to say that if he does not get a new deal, “I’m here. I’m...

Saints training camp: Kool-Aid McKinstry practices without limitations

The New Orleans Saints used a second-round pick on defensive back Kool-Aid McKinstry out of Alabama this offseason, nabbing him at a much lower draft position than most had anticipated. This may have been due to a foot injury that McKinstry was dealing with, specifically a Jones fracture in his right foot. These types of injuries generally take about three to four months to heal, and McKinstry has met that timeline.

According to multiple reports, including one from Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football, McKinstry was participating in the training camp practice Wednesday. Additionally, he...
