Hopefully Injury will Heal Before Fridays Game

New Orleans quarterback Aaron Brooks tweaked his strained right thigh and hobbled off the field in the second quarter of the Saints' game against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night.

Brooks, who sat out the Saints' preseason opener because of the strained quadriceps muscle, pulled up while scrambling to avoid defensive lineman Grady Jackson, a former teammate.

Brooks, who was replaced by Todd Bouman, completed 7 of 13 passes for 44 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions.

On the next series, New Orleans backup running back Aaron Stecker left the game with a neck stinger when he was hit by linebacker Nick Barnett and fumbled.
