Nick Toon WR NO 4 Days
Saints declared WR Nick Toon, FS Rafael Bush, QB Ryan Griffin, CB Trevin Wade, LB Keyunta Dawson, OT Terron Armstead, and DE Glenn Foster inactive for Week 14 against the Panthers.

Nick Toon WR NO 1 Month
Nick Toon had no catches on four targets in Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Jets.
Subbing for an inactive Marques Colston (knee), Toon led all Saints wideouts with 55 snaps and 43 routes run. He also led them with ineffective play. Toon had a brutal drop on a perfectly thrown deep ball early on and then had a pass clang off his hands for an interception later. From there, Drew Brees appeared hesitant to throw the second-year man the ball.
Nick Toon WR NO 4 Months
Saints WR Nick Toon caught four passes for 66 yards in Friday's preseason opener against the Chiefs.
Rookie Kenny Stills is in the driver's seat for No. 3 wideout duties following Joe Morgan's ACL tear, but Toon is making a case for playing time. He's also Marques Colston's top backup. Toon certainly has a roster spot sewn up.
Nick Toon WR NO 4 Months
According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, second-year WR Nick Toon "continues (to) standout" in Saints camp.
A 2012 fourth-rounder, Toon missed his entire rookie season with a foot injury. He's fighting for a spot in the slot behind starter Marques Colston. It's too soon to forecast Toon's fantasy value, but any Saints receiver is worth keeping an eye on.
Nick Toon WR NO 5 Months
Saints second-year WR Nick Toon has been the biggest beneficiary in terms of camp reps from Marques Colston's (foot) absence.
The Saints are easing Colston into camp, and it appears Toon is being utilized as his primary backup at slot receiver. The outside wideouts are Lance Moore and Joe Morgan. Toon is in the hunt for No. 4 receiver duties, trying to hold off Kenny Stills, Andy Tanner, and Saalim Hakim. Still, it's notable that he's Colston's direct backup, in case Colston misses time during the season.
Nick Toon WR NO Sep 03 '12
Saints WR Nick Toon will likely need foot surgery as he spends his rookie year on injured reserve.
Toon played in the preseason finale, but interim coach Aaron Kromer said the rookie still "wasn't ready," and the chronic problems in his foot now need to be surgically addressed. The good news is Toon should be able to rest up in a redshirt rookie year. The bad news is his foot has been problematic for over a year, and not something Toon is capable of playing effectively through.
