Saints' Willie Snead: Receives three-game ban
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The NFL suspended Snead for the first three games of the regular season Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Snead violated the NFL's policy on substances of abuse, precipitating the suspension. Fortunately for the Saints, the ban was reduced from four games to three, allowing Snead to make his season debut in Week 4 at Miami. During his time on the sideline, the Saints will likely lean on Ted Ginn, Brandon Coleman and Tommylee Lewis opposite Michael Thomas to keep the offense humming.

Saints' Willie Snead: No go Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead (undisclosed) isn't expected to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Ravens, Joe DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.

Although no injury was reported in the aftermath of Monday's absence from practice, Snead may be dealing with some sort of issue at the moment. No matter, as a starter, he was an unlikely candidate to take the field anyway Thursday. Snead will join Michael Thomas on the sideline, affording plenty of reps for reserve wideouts Brandon Coleman and Corey Fuller.

Saints' Willie Snead: Misses Monday practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead did not practice Monday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Snead has been healthy throughout training camp and the preseason, catching three of four targets for 18 yards in two exhibition appearances. While an injury hasn't been reported, his absence from Monday's practice suggests there's at least a minor issue at play. Snead is the favorite to finish second on the team in targets, though Ted Ginn could play ahead of him in two-wide formations. Snead will primarily operate from the slot, just as he did last season.

Saints' Willie Snead: Quiet night Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead brought in one of two targets for four yards in Saturday's 13-0 preseason win over the Texans.

Snead had another unremarkable night and notably saw Michael Thomas (four receptions), Ted Ginn, Jr. (three receptions) and Brandon Coleman (two receptions) all outpace him on the stat sheet. Nevertheless, the speedy third-year man is expected to serve as no less than the No. 3 wideout, a role that should certainly afford him an abundance of targets in the Saints' pass-happy attack.

Saints' Willie Snead: Gets extended snaps in second preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught two passes for 14 yards in Sunday's preseason game against the Chargers.

Snead's pedestrian performance in the second preseason game wasn't particularly notable -- especially with backup quarterbacks Chase Daniel and Ryan Nassib at the helm -- but it was interesting that the presumed starting receiver played well into the fourth quarter. According to head coach Sean Payton, Snead's extended action was merely an effort to get the receiver some extra reps, as the 24-year-old had missed a portion of training camp due to an undisclosed injury. Snead was listed behind newcomer Ted Ginn on the Saints' initial unofficial depth chart, but that placement is likely a formality. Snead has proven to be one of Drew Brees' most trusted targets, so he should see plenty of snaps this season, both from the slot and as an outside receiver.
