Nick Toon: (Foot) Hits IR
Update: Toon (foot), surprisingly, was placed on injured reserve Friday, Adam Caplan of reports.

Recommendation: Toon appeared to be progressing from his Aug. 2 foot injury, but the 23-year-old wideout's season is essentially over. The Saints took Toon in the fourth round of April's draft after he went for 926 yards and 10 touchdowns as a senior at Wisconsin last season. His placement on the injured reserve means that 2011 will almost be a "red shirt" season for the rookie wide out.
