Coach Sean Payton took questions from WWL's Kristian Garic and other members of the media following Thursday's practice in Oxnard, California.

Payton's opening statement: “Here’s the list of players who did not practice: Ezra Butler, Tom Johnson, Johnny Patrick, Jeff Charleston, Fabian Washington, Chris Taylor, Aubrayo Franklin, Clint Ingram, Roger Allen, Jarred Fayson, Carl Nicks, Junior Galette, Lance Moore, and Joe Morgan. Joe Morgan, we’re going to scope on Monday. He has a meniscus. We did the MRI today. It’s something that came up in practice yesterday and should put him at two to four weeks from a time frame. Obviously, he won’t play this weekend. Mitch King received work. Sedrick Ellis received work, limited. Will Herring the same way. Roman Harper had a small fracture in his right finger. That happened at practice and they went ahead and splinted it. He should be fine. I may not play him this weekend. If it was a regular season game, he’d be ready to go.”

What’s Lance Moore’s injury?

“He has a groin. It happened yesterday. We rested him in the walk-throughs this morning and this afternoon’s practice. I probably won’t play him Sunday as well. It’s something that we think we’ll get him back next week and we’ll decide if we want to play him on Thursday.”

How much does Joe Morgan’s injury affect this team?

“If you look closely at the guys I mentioned, there are four or five guys that have been injured that hopefully we’re going to get back. We’re going to get a good group of these guys back for next week, but obviously not in Joe’s case. We’ll have to make a decision with the information we have right now and go from there.”

What’s the plan with the Raiders this weekend? Are you planning to let the starters play three quarters?

“What we talked about last night is we’re going to play them through the first half and then we’ll get a pitch count at halftime as far as how much they’ve played. Generally one side of the ball or the other gets more snaps. We’ll probably look to come out in the third quarter with at least one side of the ball and go from there, so at least through the first half and then some substitutions. The primary starters will play the first half and then we’ll see where we are at halftime to see what we’re going to do in the third quarter.”

Yes it is, but so far it seems as if they only miss a few practices and they're right back at it.

I wonder if the staff is just being extra cautious because of all the excessive injuries we've had over the last 5 years. The extra 10 guys in camp allows you to rest a few dinged up players that perhaps you couldn't in years past.

I would think that would be the prudent thing to do...

Morgan's injury is significant. Meniscus tear is not a happy thing. My brother just went through that surgery, and it will take over a year for him to get back to normal, if he ever does.

I want to get excited over this game... Because it's televised. But it's going to be hard to do that; 1) with all these injuries 2) we have a coach who likes to deceive the regular season opponents with pre-season vanilla football. 3) We've coined "Strategic Mediocrity" when games "don't count".

I say we take no prisoners from here on out and go ahead and pull the champagne away from the '72 Dolphins!!!

WE DAT!!!!

Sucks about Morgan... although it doesn't seem like we have too many significant injuries to our starters which is good. Knock on wood.

That depends entirely on how bad it is.
