The day ahead for the Saints

METAIRIE, La. -- It’s going to be another busy day out at the Saints’ facility. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s going on.

The Saints will practice from 10:45 a.m. CT to 1:30 p.m. That’s not open to the media, but coach Sean Payton will address the media as soon as practice is over and we’ll give you whatever injury updates he has as soon as possible.

After Payton’s news conference, defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. and special teams coordinator Greg McMahon will meet with the media. The Saints will open their locker room from 2:15 p.m. to 3 p.m. for player interviews.

I’ll bring you news and notes on all of that and I’ll also be working on an extensive story about Jahri Evans, who seemingly has come from nowhere to become perhaps the best guard in the NFL. That story will run Friday afternoon and you’ll find out all of the details about where “nowhere’’ really is.
