METAIRIE, La. — I’ve probably written it two dozen times over the past nine years: The New Orleans Saints’ offense is deep enough to absorb the loss of any one player. I’ve even written that about tight end Jimmy Graham and running back Darren Sproles.
But for some reason, I’m less confident than ever in making that statement now with the loss of rookie receiver Brandin Cooks for the season with a broken thumb.
It’s not that Cooks was performing at such an incredible level that his production can’t be replaced.
