Sunday will mark the return of two familiar faces to the Superdome, only this time they'll be wearing the orange and white colors of the Cleveland Browns. Both linebacker Scott Fujita and running back Mike Bell played integral parts in last year's Super Bowl run, but they were signed away in the offseason by other teams.

The Browns made an offer to Fujita that he couldn't refuse so one of the Saints' most loved players was now headed north. Bell ended up in Philadelphia after signing with the Eagles, but was recently traded to the Browns and has reunited with his former black and gold teammate. It's obvious that the two players have been missed at times this season yet the Saints have still managed to move forward without them.

A rash of injuries at the linebacker position made many long for the days of the popular Fujita as younger players like Jo-Lonn Dunbar and Marvin Mitchell have had to rotate in and out. Jonathan Casillas seemed poised to take over Fujita's starting spot but unfortunately ended up on injured reserve. The injuries in the running back department forced a lot of people to question the Saints letting Bell get away, but it appears as if Chris Ivory has found a niche he fits into nicely.
