Lance Moore injured, has surgery

WR Lance Moore has injured his left shoulder during the team's offseason conditioning program workouts.

Moore went under the knife of familiar, near-legendy Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham yesterday for surgery.

Sean Payton expects Moore to be ready for training camp, though he will miss the rest of offseason workouts and the Saints' minicamp.

Moore has not yet signed his restricted free agent tender, while other teams have until tomorrow night to sign him to an offer sheet. It was unlikely any team was going to try to steal Moore for a second round pick before the injury.
