Three of the Saints starting offensive lineman missed practice time this week. Guards Larry Warford and Andrus Peat, as well as tackle Terron Armstead missed practice with various injuries. Warford has an abdomen injury, Peat has a hip injury and Armstead continues to rest his shoulder, where he had surgery.

The team is already aware that Warford is expected to miss several weeks, and Armstead is more of "maintenance".

The Saints take on the Tampa Bay Bucs this weekend in New Orleans.
