Saints RB Lynell Hamilton suffered what the team suspects is a season-ending torn ACL injury.
Lynell Hamilton was looking to fill the Bell role for the Saints this year, and likely would have received somewhere in the neighborhood of 25% of the RB touches in New Orleans. Without much depth after Hamilton on the depth chart, the Saints will likely look to the free agent pool, but not much is out there aside from Brian Westbrook. If the Saints fail to add another decent back to their team, Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas will both be receiving more touches. Look for a rankings update later today or tomorrow as this story unfolds.
