Quiet game for Harper, Henderson
2 Saints friends focusing on Tigers, Crimson Tide

METAIRIE — Other than a couple of hours each day on the practice field, New Orleans Saints wide receiver Devery Henderson and strong safety Roman Harper won’t be seeing much of each other this week.

Even though they’ve been friends and teammates for the past six seasons, winning a Super Bowl together just two seasons ago, their allegiance to their respective colleges is taking precedence this week in the Saints locker room, weight room and cafeteria.

At noon Sunday, all will be forgotten, and they’ll be friends once again as they join forces to help the Saints beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

But Saturday night, after meetings are over, they’ll be glued to the TV sets in their rooms in the team hotel watching No. 1 LSU take on No. 2 Alabama in the biggest regular-season game in Southeastern Conference history.

“Me and Devery won’t talk all week,” Harper, who played for Alabama from 2002-05, said last week. “There will be nothing for us to talk about. It’s not necessary for us to talk that week.”
