Saints To Continue Rotating OT’s Zach Strief, Jermon Bushrod

Saints head coach Sean Payton said left tackles Zach Strief and Jermon Bushrod would continue to alternate at the position as they did for last week’s game against the Tampa Bay Bucs. Strief, a four-year veteran, was a surprise starter after Bushrod had started the eight games he was healthy for earlier in the season.

Payton said the coaching staff just wanted to get Strief some playing time after performing well in recent practices. “We really came out of the St. Louis game (on Nov. 15) wanting to get him some work, and we were able to do it in this week’s game,” Payton said. “We’ll continue to look at both of those players as options as we move forward. Both of those guys are going to play.”
