ROOKIE REPORT: Sean Payton praised CB Marshon Lattimore for his performance since returning from the knee injury that sidelined him for two weeks. "I thought he had a good week, thought he had a good week," Payton said enthusiastically. The Saints' top draft pick (11th overall) wasn't targeted in his preseason debut against the Chargers – and he did slip up when he whiffed on RB Melvin Gordon in the open field. But Lattimore generally held his own in the game and in two days of joint practices with the Chargers to get quickly back up to speed. Lattimore looks poised to be a Week 1 starter in the wake of Delvin Breaux's injury. "Considering the missed injury time, I thought it was an important week for him," Payton said.
