Saints News, 8/4/14: Drew Brees Not In Pads At Monday Practice

Defensive back Champ Bailey made an appearance at Saints training camp, although not in pads -- only on an exercise bike -- while quarterback Drew Brees did not practice during Monday's session. Brees was held out of the annual scrimmage Saturday after injuring his left oblique during Friday’s morning session. Payton says Drew is "day-to-day."

New Orleans Saints' projected roster - New Orleans Saints Blog - ESPN
Toon has looked great all summer and really seems like the front-runner for the No. 4 receiver job. However, he looked great last summer, too, and still got bumped out of the rotation when the Saints re-signed Meachem. So Meachem won't go away quietly. I still think it will be tough for all six of these guys to make the roster since the Saints typically keep only four receivers active on game days. But they have all shown enough in the past to earn the benefit of the doubt for now.
