The Saints went heavy with backups for the second straight week in preseason action.

Not a big surprise, however, as starters typically won't see heavy action until the third preseason game, which for the Saints is an upcoming meeting with the New York Jets.

Meanwhile, quarterback Drew Brees did not play Sunday and observed the game on the sidelines with a white baseball cap for a second straight preseason game. Wide receiver Michael Thomas and starting left tackle Terron Armstead did not dress.

Teddy Bridgewater drew the start at quarterback for the second straight week and totaled 24 snaps. Bridgewater was mostly ineffective as he battled an illness before giving way to Taysom Hill (40 snaps) shortly before halftime.



At running back, Alvin Kamara (10) and Latavius Murray (10) saw limited action for a second straight preseason game. Dwayne Washington played on 13 offensive plays, and the Saints got a good look at rookie Devin Ozigbo, who totaled 22 snaps after playing just nine snaps in the preseason opener. Ozigbo totaled 53 yards (30 rushing), but had a lost fumble inside the Chargers’ 10-yard line. Jacquizz Rodgers saw action on seven offensive snaps and three special teams snaps, while Kerwynn Williams played on two offensive snaps.

With Thomas not participating, rookie wide receiver Emmanuel Butler drew the start alongside Ted Ginn Jr. and played on 25 offensive snaps in his first preseason action. Butler, though, did not record a catch on three targets.

Simmie Cobbs Jr. led the wide receiver group with 32 snaps, while Butler’s 25 snaps came in second. Tre’Quan Smith and Travin Dural each logged 23 snaps, Lil’Jordan Humphrey played on 22 plays, Ginn totaled 17 snaps, Austin Carr totaled 15 and Cyril Grayson saw action on 13 offensive plays. Deonte Harris saw all his 11 ssnaps on special teams as a returner, where he totaled five punt returns for 55 yards and two kickoff returns for 50 yards.

Carr’s made the most of his one catch by getting in the end zone after hauling in a 27-yard pass from Hill.

The offensive line’s depth, especially at the tackle position, was tested after Chris Clark was carted off the field with a right leg injury. Clark’s leg was in an air cast after he went down late in the second quarter, and then Michael Ola left the game in the second half with an undisclosed injury. With Armstead watching from the sidelines, Marshall Newhouse started and played on 21 offensive snaps. Rookie Derrick Kelly, who has flashed in training camp, played 24 snaps, while Patrick Omameh produced a team-high 43 snaps.
