Sean Payton says there is ‘no situation’ with Drew Brees’ knee

James Varney, The Times-Picayune

In what was surely welcomed news for New Orleans Saints fans, quarterback Drew Brees was not listed in the team’s injury report Wednesday, although he practiced with a brace on his sore left knee and expects to play with it.

Brees took a shot on the knee from Atlanta Falcons defensive end John Abraham – a tackle Brees said was not late or dirty – late in the fourth quarter of the Saints’ 27-24 loss Sunday at the Superdome. But the swelling and pain have subsided since Monday, Brees said.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees nursing sore knee; expects to be fine come Sunday

James Varney, The Times-Picayune

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees practiced Wednesday with a brace on his left knee, a device he said provided, “stability and comfort,” and he expects to wear it Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.

The knee took a hit in the fourth quarter of the Saints loss to the Falcons, on a 4th and 1 on which he hit tight end Jeremy Shockey for a first down. But Brees said the joint has improved considerably from day to day and he expects to be 100 percent on game day.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees practices; RB Pierre Thomas and S Roman Harper do not

Mike Triplett, The Times-Picayune

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is not listed on the team’s injury report this week, though he was wearing a brace on his left knee during practice. He has “soreness” in the knee, according to Coach Sean Payton. But Payton said Brees, “functioned fine.”

Tailback Pierre Thomas, meanwhile, did not practice with a left ankle injury. But Thomas has not been ruled out of Sunday’s game at Carolina. Payton wants to see how he progresses as the week goes on. Backup Chris Ivory fully practiced on Wednesday as he continues to recover from a knee injury. He and veteran Ladell Betts could pick up extra carries if Thomas can’t play. DeShawn Wynn could also be activated from the practice squad

How I See It: NFC South Stock Watch

By Pat Yasinskas

FALLING

Marques Colston, wide receiver, Saints. The guy who is supposed to be New Orleans’ best wide receiver and maybe even the best receiver in the NFC South had just four catches for a very inconsequential 25 yards Sunday. Colston has yet to catch a touchdown pass this season. With his mediocre start and the quarterback struggles in Carolina taking a toll on Steve Smith, it’s become abundantly clear that Atlanta’s Roddy White is the best wide receiver in the division

Saints and Falcons by the numbers

By Pat Yasinskas

NEW ORLEANS — The fine folks at ESPN Stats & Information just passed along some stuff on the Falcons’ 27-24 overtime victory Sunday. Let’s run through some of the highlights.

  • Atlanta got the ball twice in overtime and the series had different approaches and different results. On the first series, which was three and out, the Falcons tried to do it through the air. Matt Ryan just missed a wide-open Harry Douglas on the first play and was sacked on third down. The Falcons ran the ball on second down. On the second drive, they ran the ball a lot. Using two backs on every one of 12 plays, the Falcons ran 10 times. They produced four first downs and 59 yards to set up Matt Bryant’s game-winning field goal.
