NFL Nation's Mike Triplett confirmed the nature of the injury:

Katherine Terrell of reported what Stills had to say about the injury this last Monday.

"Just took off and got off too fast, just felt it tweak," said Stills. "Like Coach (Sean Payton) said, I had pulled it a month before working out with Drew (Brees), and I thought I was healthy. I guess it wasn't."

John Paulsen of noted how strong Stills' connection was with his superstar quarterback Drew Brees last season:

This doesn't seem like a serious issue, but the Saints ought to be careful with Stills, who is a valuable, explosive part of the offense. Despite being a 2013 fifth-round pick, Stills made a splash as a rookie, averaging 20 yards per catch on 32 receptions and scoring five touchdowns.
