Faine’s Pec Injury May Sideline Him Sunday in SF

The Saints hope they can continue their winning streak in San Fran on Sunday, but may have to do it without starting center Jeff Faine.  The anchor of the line is suffering from a left pectoral injury.  Head coach Sean Payton said that the injury won’t require surgery, but could cause him to miss this Sunday’s game.  Faine did not come back in after leaving the game against the Falcons in the third quarter.  He had X-rays this past week, and it showed there were not tears.  “There’s no surgery; there’s no procedure. It is what it is. It will take time to where he feels strong enough in that area,” Payton said.  Another player that may be out of the lineup is defensive tackle Brian Young.  He was limited in practice with knee stiffness, and missed practice on Wednesday.
