Horn Receives Mild Left Strain

Last year at this time, WR Joe Horn took a shot to the ribs in the opener against Minnesota and missed most of the preseason.  This time around, Horn took a big hit on a short hitch pass over the middle.  Horn ran up the field for a first down and a 15-yard gain, and remained on the field despite taking a shot and noticeably limping.

Horn has a mild left knee strain and has been pulled out of the rest of the game.

While the injury is not a serious concern, Horn may be held out the rest of the preseason as a precaution.
