Saints Nation: Saints to Scrimmage Today

The Saints will have their first live game like situation today as they scrimmage at the indoor Saints facility in Metairie. You can read THIS PRESS CONFERENCE with Saints head coach Sean Payton to get an idea of the schedule. This scrimmage will be held indoors, unfortunately, and thus will be closed to the public. Players, according to Payton, who will not play: Randall Gay, Adrian Arrington, Darren Sharper, Lance Moore, Dan Campbell and possibly Reggie Bush. Scott Fujita will be back in time from a funeral yesterday to play. We'll get a chance to see how the 1st team defense fares against both the 2nd team offense AND the 1st team offense.

Stay tuned and come back to Saints Nation for a full report on the scrimmage.
