Even though there has been no official word on who will and who won’t make an appearance at tonight’s preseason game against the St. Louis Rams, its a pretty safe bet that Drew Brees will be sitting this one out, along with a few others veteran players because of injury or precaution.
Brees has yet to return to the field since spraining an oblique last Friday, so the chances of him being thrown into a preseason opener are about as slim as it gets.
Others likely to miss the the game tonight after being held out or limited in practice this past week include; offensive tackle Ty Nsekhe, guards Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs, tight end Je’Ron Hamm, receiver Kenny Stills, fullback Erik Lorig, cornerbacks Champ Bailey and Terrance Frederick, line backer Victor Butler, defensive tackle John Jenkins and safety Jarius Byrd.
