Pete Carroll: Seahawks 'preparing for everything' vs. Saints

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton has to be happy: his opening salvo in the mind games between him and Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has struck home.

On Wednesday, Payton offhandedly noted that he wouldn't be announcing a starting quarterback before the Saints and Seahawks kick off their Week 3 game at CenturyLink Field. With Drew Brees sidelined with an injury to his throwing hand, it falls to Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill to fill in. And Payton made it known that Hill wouldn't necessarily be the number-two guy in that situation, suggesting the Saints may play both of them at times against Seattle

Saints | J.T. Barrett back in the Big Easy

Five things to know about the Seahawks' Week 3 opponent, the New Orleans Saints

This Seahawks-Saints showdown suddenly looks much different. What was set up to be a premier early-season showdown in the NFC — between two teams with Super Bowl aspirations — took a dramatic turn Monday when it was revealed that Saints quarterback Drew Brees will miss significant time with a thumb injury on his throwing hand. […]

Getting another opinion on thumb

Coach Sean Payton relayed Monday that Brees (thumb) is getting another opinion on his injured right thumb, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports. "They're still in the midst of evaluating it," Payton said. "He's had one opinion, (he's) having a second opinion. As soon as we know something that we can confirm, then we'll report it. But right now, that's kind of the stage we're in."

Brees picked up the injury when his follow-through on a throw slammed into the hand of incoming Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald during Sunday's game. On the sideline afterward, Brees was unable to clutch a football and remained out for the rest of the eventual defeat. After seeing a specialist in L.A. on Monday, it was reported that he needs surgery and will miss 6-to-8 weeks, but Payton seems to have tapped the breaks on that expectation, at least momentarily. A precise recovery timetable should emerge in due time, but there's little doubt that Brees is in line for a multi-game absence while Teddy Bridgewater directs the Saints offense.

Texans DC Romeo Crennel says 'not exactly' play design to have CBs playing off Saints WRs in Week 1 loss

Defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel says the plan wasn't really to have cornerbacks on the right side of the field play 10 yards off the ball on the final offensive play of the Houston Texans' 30-28 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 1.

On a second-and-10 from the Texans' 49-yard line, quarterback Drew Brees threw a slant to receiver Ted Ginn for nine yards that moved New Orleans in range for a 58-yard field goal try. Kicker Wil Lutz connected on the three-pointer and sent Houston home 0-1 for the third straight season
