Coach Payton's Wednesday Press Conference
Coach gives injury report, previews Seahawks game

Saints head coach Sean Payton held his first press conference since the bye week to give his team's first injury report of the week and preview Sunday's contest against the Seahawks.

Opening Statement:

“Let’s go through the injury report for today’s practice: tackle Jon Stinchcomb (knee) was limited; running back Reggie Bush (fibula) was limited; Chris Ivory (shoulder) was limited; Malcolm Jenkins (neck) was limited; Darren Sharper (hamstring) did not practice; Pierre Thomas (ankle) did not practice; tight end Jeremy Shockey (rib) did not practice; and cornerback Patrick Robinson (ankle) did not practice. Most of the work was base, with some nickel today with the schedule being a little different having gotten some work in on Monday.

Do you see these “amoeba” or free-floating defensive fronts as a fad or something you think you’ll be seeing more of?

“I don’t think it’s a fad. We’ve seen it in years past. I think it’s something that for the last couple or three years you’ve seen more and more, especially on third down. It’s trying to get off the field defensively, not trying to be stagnant but trying to really confuse the protections to begin with and get a guy free. I wouldn’t say it’s anything new; it’s something that has existed now for a couple of years.”

Do you think you’ll see more of it?

“At Carolina we got a few snaps of it. Each week you try to prepare for it. One thing that helps is that when you stay in the third down and manageable situations where it’s not as one-dimensional to where it’s just pass. When you stay underneath third-and-seven, I think it’s harder to play in the third down and two-to-three or four-to-six, and yet each week you work on those different looks.”

You and Reggie Bush had both spoken pretty confidently last week about him returning for this game. Does that still seem likely?

“Yes. He was limited today; he moved around pretty well and got some good work. We just keep plugging ahead and increasing the workload.”

Was Pierre Thomas able to do some more today?

“Yes. He’s making progress. With him, I really just want to go day-to-day here this week and just see how he continues to move.”
