New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees missed Saturday's scrimmage with a strained left oblique, coach Sean Payton said.
The injury was suffered during Friday morning's practice, and Brees is "day to day" as the Saints "monitor" the injury, Payton said.
The injury doesn't appear serious and the Saints have off Sunday so Brees has until Monday to get back on the field without missing much more time. Obviously something to monitor, but the Saints are likely just being cautious here. Backups Luke McCown and Ryan Griffin took reps with the first team in Brees' absence.
