Wednesday, August 08, 2018 2:48 PM America

The Saints released receiver Brandon Coleman with a failed physical designation on Sunday (Aug. 5), according to a league source. 

Coleman has been with the Saints since signing as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Rutgers in 2014.His best season came in 2015, when he caught 30 passes for 454 yards and two touchdowns. In his three seasons with the Saints, Coleman accounted for 79 catches, 1,099 yards and eight touchdowns.He had been let go during this most recent offseason to explore free agency but the Saints brought him back on a one-year deal when no other teams were biting.

Saints coach Sean Payton told reporters after Sunday night's practice that Coleman is dealing with hip and neck injuries, and he suggested that the door would stay open for a return down the road.

“He’s got two injuries. He’s got a hip and he’s got a neck. Both of them are going to require some time. It’d be too early for me to say three weeks, four weeks. But his progress is going well and it’s just going to take a little bit longer and right now, with where we’re at, we gotta keep making room so we can play these games.”

"I would anticipate that it's not the last time we'll see him," Payton said. "He and I had a good visit today, we're all on the same page."

The release of Brandon Coleman opens a bigger window for a player like Tommylee Lewis who is on the bubble due to the talent at the top end of the Saints receiver corps in 2018. With the Saints only keeping five or six on their 53-man roster, there’s already Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn Jr., Tre’Quan Smith and Cameron Meredith before you even get into the list of younger players with a chance to crack the roster.


New Orleans Saints 5 player not on the practice field Wednesday

The New Orleans Saints prepare to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14, but there are five players not on the practice field Wednesday.

During the portion of practice open to the media, The Saints running back Mark Ingram, left tackle Terron Armstead, rookie wide receiver Michael Thomas, center Max Unger and tight end Josh Hill were not observed on the field.

Ingram missed two days of practice in Week 13 due to the toe injury.

Armstead originally suffered the knee injury in Week 2 and has missed six games on the season.

Thomas's and Unger's absences from the practice field have unkonwn reason.

Hill suffered a broken fibula when played against Detroit in Week 13.

However, Linebacker Craig Robertson and rookie running back Daniel Lasco were observed on the practice field. Robertson left Week 13's game with an undisclosed injury early midway through the fourth quarter. Also, Lasco has missed the five previous weeks of action while battling a hamstring injury.
