Saints' week off comes as slew of key players near return

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Beyond the New Orleans Saints' quarterback transition from Drew Brees to Jameis Winston, and the club's month-long displacement by Hurricane Ida, there has been the challenge of having half-dozen or more prominent players unavailable because of injury or suspension.

The Saints (3-2) still managed to take a winning record into this week's bye, and are hoping to welcome a handful of players back to action when they return to the field.

Those missing entirely during the first five games included two-time All-Pro receiver Michael Thomas (ankle surgery), starting wideout Tre'Quan Smith (hamstring), starting defensive tackle David Onyemata (suspension), tight end Nick Vanett and kicker Wil Lutz.
