​After a scary moment in practice on Wednesday, the Saints and defensive end Alex Okafor can exhale.  Okafor went down in a pile during practice and received medical attention before walking off the field in what looked like a bad injury.  Okafor is already working his way back from an Achilles injury that cost him the final 8 games last season.  It looked worse than it turned out to be.  Okafor has a bone bruise and an ankle sprain.  At this time it's unclear as to how much time he might miss.  Nevertheless, the Saints dodged a bullet with this news. 

Okafor has been really good in training camp recovering from his injury, and following his latest injury was visibly upset.  I wouldn't be surprised if  you don't see Okafor on the field in games for the remainder of the preseason.
