Saints coach Sean Payton issued a injury report on his team and himself in his media briefing on Thursday.
Payton said his recovery from the knee surgery and the broken tibia is ahead of schedule and he could return to the sideline after the Giants game (Nov. 28). He also said the Saints need to handle the turnover battle better in this rematch with the Bucs, and said the players know how important this game is to them and the season.

Louisiana Voters Gave Jindal A Mandate
Thursday, 03 November 2011 10:41 Written by Jeffrey Sadow
Observers of the recently-conducted Louisiana state elections have wondered whether Gov. Bobby Jindal’s victory constitutes a mandate.

Buccaneers coach Rasheen Morris expects to see a different Saints team on Sunday. The 5-3 Saints host the 4-3 Bucs. One of those wins were against the Saints the week after they had been clobbered by the 49’ers.
Morris said before the first New Orleans Saints-Tampa Bay Bucs game this season he expected Drew Brees to get more than 300 passing yards. In fact Brees got 383 to set an NFL record with his fourth straight game of 350 or more. He crossed the seven-yards-per-pass threshold against the Bucs but, importantly, was also picked off four times.
