Payton offers little about team's injuries

By Nakia Hogan, The Times-Picayune

Not sure if this is a ploy to keep the New England Patriots from gaining any type of advantage, but Saints Coach Sean Payton was more secretive about the Saints injury situation than ever.



Just like after the Sunday's 38-7 victory over Tampa Bay, Payton again refused to divulge the status of injured players.



Starting cornerbacks Jabari Greer (groin) and Tracy Porter (knee) missed the game. And two other cornerbacks -- Randall Gay and Leigh Torrence - suffered injuries in the game. Gay left in the second quarter after tweaking his hamstring and Torrence was in and out of the lineup with what he called a "stinger."
Greer, though, said he was hoping to return.


"I'm doing everything in the training room to make sure that I am ready," Greer said. "I'm excited about the possibility of contributing to the team. I feel further along (than last week)."


Along with the hobbled cornerbacks, tailback Reggie Bush (knee), receiver Lance Moore (ankle) and defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis (knee) missed the game.
"No updates on anyone today," Payton said.



He did touch on the decision to leave Bush and Ellis at home instead of bringing them with the team to Tampa Bay.


"It was really where they were at on Saturday; number one, they're both leg-related injuries so if we're not going to play a player and Saturday we come in and there's still some swelling and some uncertainty, we typically will leave a player and let them rest and get the treatment at home as opposed to getting on a plane," Payton said.



"We typically don't take players that aren't going to play. Sometimes if they're questionable we take them and work them out there and we've done that before, but in their case, after working them out on Saturday morning and observing where they were at, we went ahead and did that. And then we obviously have to notify and change their status, which we were able to do."
