Saints QB Drew Brees (right shoulder, out) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is out for Week 3. Luke McCown will get the start in a bad matchup against the Panthers. The Carolina defense is the biggest beneficiary of this news, as the entire Saints offense is likely to take a step back without Brees under center. Even Mark Ingram is looking like a dicey play now that the Panthers can load up and stop the run.

Week 4 vs. Cowboys
Mark Ingram rushed 14 times for 50 yards with one touchdown, while also adding five catches for 49 yards in the Saints Week 3 loss to Carolina. He played 61 percent of the Saints offensive snaps, which is pretty much in line for what he's played for the season (63 percent). The problem is the vertical passing game is virtually non-existent in the Saints offense. so defenses haven't had too difficultly in containing Ingram. His high in the first three weeks is 53 yards, although he's been involved in the passing game enough to make him a viable RB2. Earlier this week, however, Sean Payton mentioned how he needs to get C.J. Spiller the ball more, and Khiry Robinson was still fed seven times last week. Ingram ranks as our RB11 for Week 4 and remains a RB2 option for Sunday. But the Saints directionless offense is a cause for concern.
