The Saints continued workouts with a scrimmage today. One thing was missing, Drew Brees. Brees was held out of practice due to an oblique strain. Nothing too serious, and some players say if you're going to get hurt, now's the time.

"We're not used to having Drew on the sideline, right? And what a perfect time for him to have something that's just kind of achey. Take a few days off, take some time. We know what drew can do. It's weird not having him there. We do a lot of hugging, making sure he's feeling ok. I've rubbed his obliques a few times so I'm sure that's helped. We want him to be healthy. The great thing about Drew is he's going to be in the training room twice as much as anybody and he's going to get himself right," said teammate Zach Strief.
