    Saints' Anthony Spencer works ahead of Junior Galette Thursday

    Saints linebacker Anthony Spencer worked ahead of Junior Galette in the team's base 4-3 defense, a run-heavy look that featured just three linebackers, reports. "However it came out, we're not worried about depth chart now," defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said. "We're putting in a defense, we're all working hard together and getting to know each other, our teammates and what we got. But I know both those guys can play, so we're excited about 'em." Spencer had a career-high 11 sacks in 2012 but has managed just 24 total tackles and a half-sack in 14 games over the last two years while dealing with a major knee injury. "I think sometimes there are tougher positions to evaluate at this time of year," coach Sean Payton said, when asked to give his early thoughts on Spencer. "But I think, No. 1, he can affect the passer. ... He's an edge player, I think he's very good at fitting the run, and I think he can affect the passer."
