The developing story of the Saints firing team orthopedists Deryk Jones and Misty Suri is envoloping the organization during a critical time during preseason training camp.  The firings came after doctors misdiagnosed Delvin Breaux's leg injury as a contusion when, in fact, it was a factured fibula.

Bobby Hebert chatted with Seth Dunlap after training camp practice today and said that this is not a good situation for the Saints.

"No, because you have to have that trust between the players and the organization," Hebert said.   "The initial diagnosis has to be right for players to have that trust."

Jones and Suri are employed by Ochnser Health Systems, a major sponsor of the franchise.  Bobby questioned whether there is a conflict of interest there.

"They are associated with Ochsner, so it will be interesting to see, ok, who do you interview? Who do you hire? Do you stay within that (Ochsner) organization?"
