Veteran offensive lineman Jermon Bushrod wasn't out of work for long. The Saints re-signed him Wednesday after releasing him on Saturday. They released another veteran offensive lineman, Michael Ola, to make room. Bushrod told reporters Thursday that he was released in part because he had to miss two days of practice last week because of a personal matter that he preferred to keep private.

"I just get another opportunity at the end of the day," he said. "And we get another opportunity to go and do what we got to do."

Bushrod was released by the Saints on Saturday (Sept. 8), before New Orleans' 48-40 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in order to create a roster spot for running back Jonathan Williams, who was elevated from the team's practice squad.

Bushrod said he understood the Saints' decision, as he missed a couple practices for personal reasons leading up to the opener. 

"Obviously, I wasn't here for a couple days last week so me being ready to go for the game wasn't in the plan," Bushrod said. Bushrod would have loved to be in uniform for the opener. 

"You never want to see your guys go out there and not be able to get the W," Bushrod said. "You always want to be a part of the good times and the bad times." Bushrod is expected to suit up this weekend when the Saints host the Cleveland Browns in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday at noon.


New Orleans Saints 5 player not on the practice field Wednesday

The New Orleans Saints prepare to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14, but there are five players not on the practice field Wednesday.

During the portion of practice open to the media, The Saints running back Mark Ingram, left tackle Terron Armstead, rookie wide receiver Michael Thomas, center Max Unger and tight end Josh Hill were not observed on the field.

Ingram missed two days of practice in Week 13 due to the toe injury.

Armstead originally suffered the knee injury in Week 2 and has missed six games on the season.

Thomas's and Unger's absences from the practice field have unkonwn reason.

Hill suffered a broken fibula when played against Detroit in Week 13.

However, Linebacker Craig Robertson and rookie running back Daniel Lasco were observed on the practice field. Robertson left Week 13's game with an undisclosed injury early midway through the fourth quarter. Also, Lasco has missed the five previous weeks of action while battling a hamstring injury.
