04:48 PM ET 06.12 | Brutal news for New Orleans Saints linebacker Victor Butler as he tore his ACL during Tuesday's organized team activities practice, according to a source. Butler was a key free-agent signing during the offseason and figured to be a player to help the Saints' lackluster pass rush. Butler was on the first-team defense at outside linebacker, opposite Will Smith, the last two weeks of practice. The source also said Butler will likely end up on injured reserve and Butler will have surgery once the swelling in his injured knee has subsided. This was the last week of OTAs for the Saints, and Wednesday's practice session was canceled so the players could take a field trip. Running back Mark Ingram took a swing pass during a team drill during Tuesday's practice and collided with Butler near the sideline. Ingram ran free, but Butler remained on the turf for a couple of minutes. Ingram and Saints coach Sean Payton went over to check on Butler while Butler was on the turf.

Wow just when you didn't think it was possible, the interns got worse! The exact same story posted within 4 hours and 36 mins of the other this time. Usually they wait at least oh, 6 hours before they double post.

Do you think it's two different shifts, no one on either caring enough to check to see what the other shift posted? Because that's my latest theory.

You might be on to something there. I sure would hate to think the interns are so bored they don't realize what they do 4 hours apart OR maybe they get paid by how many stories they post and as long as the source is different each time the story qualifies as a new post.

Sure would explain the sources. Some intern thinks Fansided is a valid source. I say that's the one to fire. (Just kidding, interns, please don't **** with my account.)
