And add a footnote that RB Mark Ingram is out too.

According to Dianna Russini of ESPN, the New Orleans Saints will be resting three of their top offensive players against the Cleveland Browns: QB Drew Brees, RB Adrian Peterson, and RB Mark Ingram.

Assuming that Browns DE Myles Garrett plays with the first-team defense, that means he’ll be trying to wreak havoc on backup QB Chase Daniel. After Daniel, a combination of Garrett Grayson and Ryan Nassib should see action.

Saints rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore and left tackle Ryan Ramczyk might also sit out, which could make things even more favorable for Garrett.
