After listening to Saints Coach Sean Payton today I believe more and more that starting center Jeff Faine will not play this Sunday against the 49ers.
Faine has a pectoral injury.
Starting defensive tackle Brian Young also did not practice Wednesday.
Young had to have fluid drained from his knee.
I think Young will play Sunday.
I also think the Saints defense will have another solid effort.
It’s looking more and more like Alex Smith is going to start at QB for the niners.
Smith has missed the past 3 games due to a shoulder injury.
Niners RB Frank Gore has been playing poorly, and I think Smith is coming back too soon.
So look for another solid effort from the defense.
