New Orleans (3-1) hosts Tampa Bay (2-2) in a huge NFC South showdown this Sunday at noon in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Saints know they'll be without quarterback Drew Brees, who continues to recover from thumb surgery, and it doesn't look good for quality backup defensive end Trey Hendrickson, who was not spotted at practice today and remains out with a neck injury.

Here's a rundown of Thursday's practice/injury report.
