New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Morgan practiced as usual during Thursday's organized team activity session after being arrested last weekend for DWI and driving without a valid driver's license.

Saints Coach Sean Payton said he's had a chance to visit with Morgan following the arrest. Payton also said the team is on top of all of the specifics of the arrest.

"I think each team is faced with it at some point, hopefully less than more," Payton said on how to handle arrested players. "It is what it is in regards to the lesson and you hope that the other players, including Joe, learn from it. It's our job to keep reinforcing the importance of being smart and making right decisions. It's something that we've really tried to pride ourselves in since we began in '06."

Payton was asked about how some teams release a player after an off-field situation and how the Saints would handle Morgan's situation. Payton replied, "We look at each individual case, and kind of leave it at that."

Morgan is subject to possible discipline by the NFL regarding his arrest. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said alcohol-related violations of law are covered under the substance abuse policy. Aiello added that a first-time offense, with no aggravating circumstances, calls for a fine of two game checks up to maximum of $50,000.

Morgan wasn't in the locker room during the open media session Thursday so he wasn't available for comment.

Drew Brees recognized how it's not often the Saints roster has dealt with legal issues since he's been in New Orleans. Brees said he knows it is and will be a tough situation for Morgan and that all the players can do is support Morgan through his troubles.

"He's got a great (meeting) room that he's in there with guys like Lance Moore and Marques Colston, guys who have been around a long time and done things the right way and true pros," Brees said. "What you find is leaders is pull him under their wing and give them the best advice they can. But in the end, there's consequences to actions and you pay your debt and you move on. And hopefully you're better for it."
