Sean Payton said the Saints will "have a chance to look at" new OL Khalif Barnes and DE Chris McCain over the next week -- essentially giving them an extended tryout. He said Barnes can play guard and tackle and has good size and power. He said McCain is built a little like current Saints DE Obum Gwacham and also does things in special teams.

Jeff Janis was in pads but did nothing more than some running off to the side. Could be why his broken right hand wasn't in a cast like yesterday. Others out were; Makinton Dorleant (hamstring), Chris Banjo (hamstring), Joe Thomas (calf), Corey Linsley (hamstring), Richard Rodgers (illness), Jayrone Elliott (hamstring), Kenny Clark (back).

Saints LT Terron Armstead was absent from practice again Tuesday, but a source indicated recently that it's not serious. And Armstead told NOLA.com that he will "for sure" be ready for Week 1. CB Delvin Breaux and G Senio Kelemete were also among those who did not participate in Tuesday's practice with unspecified ailments. CB Damian Swann and TE Michael Hoomanawanui continued to be absent with injuries, and LB Nate Stupar was absent for unspecified reasons.

Justin Houston is going on the PUP list to start the season for the Chiefs. Another starting linebacker, Josh Mauga, will go on IR after having hip surgery. Backup fullback Trey Millard was waived with an injury. The Chiefs get a roster exemption for newly signed safety Eric Berry, so they can be at 76 players for the time being.

New Panthers punter Andy Lee already had a home in Charlotte before the Browns traded him on Monday. This is where his wife lived all last season, where they lost their daughter Madeline eight days after she was born a year and a half ago and where Lee attended his first NFL game as a fan when Carolina faced Seattle in the playoffs in January. Naturally, Lee's 5-year-old son Ryan wanted Cam Newton to autograph a football for him.
