Saints open practice in Houston

The Saints and Texans are starting the first of three practices together in Houston.

The first practice starts in a few minutes at 8:30am, with another this afternoon and then again tomorrow morning. The teams will then practice apart from each other Thursday afternoon.

The teams won't be in full pads and won't be going full speed, in general, they want to be kept off the ground.

The Saints held a light walkthrough yesterday afternoon in Houston.

QB Drew Brees will rejoin the team (UPDATE: in the PM) after missing time to be with his family during the memorial services for his mother.

WR Lance Moore will practice with the team, but has already been ruled out of the preseason game Saturday night.

The player who entered the game for the Saints as the third runningback last Friday has a nice writeup in his hometown newspaper.

Its 2019, and Brett Favre has re-emerged from retirement again, this time with the Brees-less Saints.

Take a look at this website's Top 10 Fantasy Quarterback seasons of all time, and marvel that Drew Brees' 2008 performance isn't there.
