Payton, Williams, Brees talk about week four of training camp
The New Orleans Saints conducted their second practice of the week in preparation for Friday's preseason contest vs. the San Diego Chargers. Following practice, Head Coach Sean Payton, Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams and QB Drew Brees each met with the media. Below is the transcript of their media sessions.

Head Coach Sean Payton

Opening Statement:

“Our work this afternoon was a little bit more third down and nickel. We’re still installing defensively and offensively both. Today we were back in pads and had some good work.”

Why did Tracy Porter sit out today?

“He has some soreness in his knee, nothing serious. We just backed off of it from the game.”

Do you see giving a backup quarterback extended playing time in a preseason game as lighting a fire under him?

“I think more than anything else it’s trying to give those guys a good portion of the game rather than just a quarter. It’s harder to evaluate that position when they’re just in for one quarter of play. Sometimes in the preseason you get so regimented with how you want to roll guys in, but I think with that position it can be a little different. That was one of the reasons we gave so much work to Chase (Daniel) last week. This week when Drew (Brees) finishes, we’ll give the majority – if not all – of the reps to Patrick (Ramsey). It’s just trying to give them enough series to give them the opportunity to get comfortable with what they’re doing and the operations of a game. Sometimes if it’s just a quarter or a quarter-and-a-half, it’s harder to do that at that position.”
