A calf injury sidelined Saints starting RCB Tracy Porter in Week Two — it could again in Week Three — and second-year player Patrick Robinson was asked to step up in his absence. The team senses Robinson, the last pick of the first round in the 2010 draft, is playing with more confidence than he did as a rookie, and we hear the coaching staff's trust in him has grown significantly. "I think (Robinson's) overall knowledge of what we're doing defensively has given him the confidence to play at full speed," Sean Payton said this week. "I think that learning curve for him has happened very rapidly, and now he's not only learning, but he's playing. He's sudden, doing a good job with the technique depending on the coverage called, and not afraid to support in the running game, so he's improved a lot." The starting job appears to be Porter's, when healthy, but Robinson will continue playing significant snaps as the nickel back.
