Saints coach Sean Payton is back with the team after missing the last week.

Payton tested positive for COVID-19 a week ago and did not coach the team in Sunday’s win over the Buccaneers. But he was cleared and is back with the team today, according to Jeff Duncan of the Times-Picayune.

The Saints will need a great offensive game plan on Monday night against the Dolphins, as they’re now down to their fourth quarterback, rookie Ian Book. Taysom Hill and Trevor Siemian both went on COVID-19 reserve this week and Jameis Winston is out for the season with a knee injury.

The Saints opened as 3.5-point favorites against the Dolphins, but that line has now swung to the Dolphins by 2.5 after the Saints were forced to turn to Book.

  1. Funny how the Saints get hammered with covid results after embarrassing Brady. Brady must have been wailing on the phone to his dad goodell after the game demanding something be done to them

  2. How is it the saints , who are ravaged with covid, just played tampa and yet Tampa continues to have zero covid cases. Can anyone explain this. Goodell will go to all ends of the earth to protect brady

  3. Good great to see book play. The fins with that blitz job on the Ravens was impressive but doubt they will pull that on the saints. The fins will have their hands full with that defense.

  4. Kind od funny how the Bucs have zero cases>>>>> Very telling story hereand AB only 3 games. TB12 runs the leagues I guess?
