  Saints | Marques Colston injured    Tue Aug 26, 11:56 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (undisclosed) came off the field during team drills Tuesday, Aug. 26, and talked with a trainer before watching the rest of practice from the sidelines.

Footballguys view: Until we hear something specifically negative about this development, we won't change Colston's outlook, but there are no outward signs that this is anything to worry about... yet. Colston was plagued by a foot issue for the first half of the season last year, but finished very strong after resting the injury for a week. Hopefully this is not a recurrence of that issue.

  Saints | Injury notes    Tue Aug 26, 11:48 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps), SS Rafael Bush (undisclosed), SS Marcus Ball (undisclosed), LB Khairi Fortt (undisclosed) and FB Erik Lorig (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 26, and CB Trevin Wade (undisclosed) was limited.

Footballguys view: Stills has barely played this summer. His star is falling in redraft leagues and his absence is doing nothing to slow down the Brandin Cooks express and the resurgence of Marques Colston. Unless Still falls to the 11th-12th round or later, Cooks and Colston are much better picks at their ADP.

  Saints | Mark Ingram dominating     Tue Aug 26, 08:44 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram is averaging 7.1 yards per carry during the preseason and has remained on the field in passing situations.

Footballguys view: Ingram has had the same renewed vigor and burst in his runs that we saw in the second half of last season. If he can get the bulk of the goal line work, he could be a decent flex play, but he's in a three-head backfield no matter what, and we know how difficult those are to predict week to week.

  Saints | Waive two    Tue Aug 26, 02:47 PM

The New Orleans Saints waived CB Rod Sweeting and LB Kevin Reddick Tuesday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Reddick fell out of the 2013 draft and had some deep sleeper appeal in IDP leagues, but he has clearly done little to impress the Saints this summer.

  Saints | Marques Colston feeling better    Tue Aug 26, 09:47 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston said he feels much healthier this season after being plagued by a foot injury the last year or two. The team has limited his workload this preseason to keep him fresh for the season.

Footballguys view: Colston had a stat line that included 48 catches and about 600 yards in eight games after his foot injury slowed him last year. He could be a real steal in the 6th/7th as a player who can approach strong WR2 numbers in the Saints offense.

  Saints | Drew Brees misses practice    Mon Aug 25, 08:44 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (personal) missed practice Monday, Aug. 25, to be with his wife, who is expecting the couple's fourth child. The team did not comment on Brees' status for the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28.

  Saints | Champ Bailey feels good    Sun Aug 24, 10:09 AM

New Orleans Saints CB Champ Bailey said he feels good after dealing with a minor foot injury, and feels like he has to prove what he can do. "Yeah, I do have to prove what I can do," Bailey said. "Even though I've played 15 years, it doesn't matter. Man, this is a production business. I think every guy going into training camp has to show what he can do. And, you know, I feel good. If they like what I do, then I'll play a lot on Sundays. Plain and simple."

Footballguys view: Bailey is not the same player he used to be. Age and injuries have finally caught up with him. A Lisfranc injury slowed him down last season with the Broncos, and his foot is still giving him trouble today.

  Saints | Brandin Cook returns    Thu Aug 21, 09:02 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (illness) returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday, Aug. 21, and he is questionable for the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Footballguys view: We love watching Cooks on the football field. He's got a little Steve Smith (Panthers, Ravens) to his game, but he's not quite as feisty as he needs to be when the pass comes in. It'd be great to get the rookie more reps in the preseason, but the team will be wisely cautious.

  Saints | Jairus Byrd a full go    Wed Aug 20, 08:11 AM

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints FS Jairus Byrd (back) participated in full-contact practice drills for the first time this season Tuesday, Aug. 19. He's expected to play in the third preseason game this weekend.

Footballguys view: The Saints defense was already on the rise with great young defensive ends and Kenny Vaccaro wreaking havoc everywhere. With Byrd covering the deep part of the field, Rob Ryan can take even more chances. New Orleans is a terrific team D/ST to target if you don't want to stream all season.

  Saints | Erik Lorig may miss Week 1    Wed Aug 20, 05:59 AM

  Saints | Mark Ingram's role evolving    Tue Aug 19, 10:50 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram has never had a touchdown reception during the regular season, but he took a screen pass for a 23-yard touchdown in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: Don't assume Ingram is going to become a high volume receiving back. One or two catches a game could make him a less dicey flex play, but he will still be in a three-headed backfield.

  Saints | Drew Brees expects to play in preseason game    Mon Aug 18, 12:52 AM

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (oblique) said he definitely plans to play in the third preseason game.

Footballguys view: We'll feel better about Brees when we see him in action. Oblique injuries are painful, and they can alter a quarterback's mechanics. We imagine that Brees will look like his old self, but we're certainly going to be monitoring the situation.

  Saints | Drew Brees may play    Sun Aug 17, 07:22 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (oblique) may play in the third preseason game, according to head coach Sean Payton. However, Payton doesn't want to put a target date on Brees' return.

Footballguys view: Not seeing Brees in the preseason isn't the end of the world, but if the injury affects him during the season, we can't say we weren't warned. This isn't so much an injury that would sideline Brees as much as it might take a little bit of edge off of his upside.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (oblique) is doing individual drills in practice Sunday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: This continues to progress, although at a somewhat slower rate. Still, there has been nothing too glaring to make us reconsider Brees' ranking. We'd love to see him light it up in the third preseason game just to be safe.

  Saints | Coach not happy with touchdown celebration    Sat Aug 16, 10:51 AM

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton was upset with TE Jimmy Graham earning two 15-yard unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties in the team's preseason game for dunking the ball over the goal posts. Graham and Payton appeared to get into tense verbal sparring after the second penalty was called. Payton confirmed he was upset after the game. "Yes, I was," Payton said. "I'm very upset. Would you be upset? I was, particularly."

Footballguys view: Wanna hug it out? Graham was a former basketball star in college at Miami, and he's known for dunking it over the goal posts.

It does not appear like New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (oblique) will be able to play in the second preseason game even though head coach Sean Payton has not disclosed his status.

  Saints | Drew Brees back in pads    Tue Aug 12, 09:27 AM

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (oblique) is wearing pads but is unlikely to practice much Tuesday, Aug. 12.

Footballguys view: This is nothing to worry about with Brees yet, but we do want to see him suit up in the preseason and fling it downfield with his normal velocity and accuracy before completely eliminating the possibility of this being a problem for him this year. Because Brees is a smaller QB, his mechanics are even more important to his success.
