Still uncertain for Week 1
Bill O’Brien on Keke Coutee and if he will play against Saints: ‘I think Keke is trending in the right direction, still not sure about the first game. I think I was unequivocal at banquet about him not playing. I can change my mind.’ (Aaron Wilson)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Coutee is battling an ankle injury that was expected to keep him out of Week 1 and possibly longer. That’s still on the table but the head coach is at least painting a brighter picture on the slot receivers’ recovery. If Coutee doesn’t play, DeAndre Carter would likely see increased snaps.
