WPIX - [Full Article]

The Saints held their first scrimmage of training camp on Saturday without starting QB Drew Brees, who was excused for what the club said was a family matter.

The Saints did not go into further detail about Brees' absence, and HC Payton said he was unsure whether the QB would return for the club's next scheduled set of practices on Monday.

QB Mark Brunell worked mostly with the first-team offense, completing 13-of-19 passes for 134 yards, including a touchdown pass to Marques Colston on a third-and-goal play from the 1-yard line.
