The Saints will have practice indoors this afternoon, and following daily practices from Monday through Thursday, the team will travel to Houston on Friday in preparation for Saturday's game against the Texans.

Today's Fleur-de-Links brings you more wrap-up from the 49ers game, along with some player feature articles, a Saints 2011 fantasy football video, and some tweets to wet your whistle.

Be sure to check back tonight for the post-practice recap, ok?
