Payton on WWL just reported. With hip flexor and surgery is scheduled.

Saints sign Ray Willis, OT

Strief to start at RT.

Saints placed OT Charles Brown (hip flexor) on injured reserve, ending his season.

It's a tough blow for Brown, who shined as the Saints' fill-in starter at right tackle with Zach Strief nursing an injury of his own. Coach Sean Payton revealed that Brown injured his hip flexor and will require surgery. He's been injury prone through two seasons, but should maintain a roster spot in 2012.

Ouch. I hope Strief is ready. I don't feel real confident with McQuistin at all.

I know Brown was hot/cold, but he was better than anything else on our roster, which translates to "oh crap, you thought it was bad before..."

OH NO! Ray Willis wasn't on a team for a reason. Everyone is s***ing on Brown but no one played well last week. Until this past week everyone seemed to think he was the next big thing. This is a downgrade.

Brown just seems to be made of glass, which is a big part of the reason why he hasn't developed quicker. He performed better than I expected, but he would need to stay healthy for longer periods of time to really start evolving in his position.

Hope Strief is 100% and that he can perform at a higher level than he was when he went down with the injury!

This really sucks. He ha a good game against the Colts good DEs, a down game against the Rams are a thing that can happen in the development of a young OL.
