Saints News, 8/30/16: Brees Expected to Play Thursday

New, comments

Despite game four of the preseason generally being about resting starters, Sean Payton still hasn't seen all that he wants to see out of the first team offense. This could be because of the constant shuffling and reshuffling of the Saints' offensive line, in an attempt to see how Brees acclimates to the various looks that the Saints are trying to employ.
