Saints News, 9/23/15: Sean Payton Says Drew Brees is 'Day-to-Day'

New, comments

From WWLTV.com: When asked about Brees' bruised rotator cuff, Payton said the quarterback was "day-to-day. We'll include it in our injury list." "From an injury standpoint there is nothing I'm going to say at all other than it'll be day-to-day and we'll see how he's progressing, and we'll be smart," Payton said during his weekly teleconference with media. Payton declined to comment on the number of repetitions backup quarterback Luke McCown would get in practice. "I'm not going to discuss hypotheticals on a Wednesday," Payton told the media.
