METAIRIE, La. ― Pro Bowl right tackle Jon Stinchcomb sat out practice Thursday morning, resting a dinged shoulder that Head Coach Sean Payton said wasn’t serious.

Payton said he expects Stinchcomb to play in Saturday night’s home preseason game against Houston.

Free safety Usama Young continued rehabbing a groin injury, going through conditioning jogs at the end beginning of practice.

Meanwhile, linebacker Stanley Arnoux (right ankle), fullback Marcus Mailei (leg), and tight end Jimmy Graham (right ankle) also sat out.

The two remaining PUP players – linebacker Clint Ingram (left knee) and safety Darren Sharper (left knee) – continued their stays off the field.

In other news, Payton said the team would have the afternoon off of practice. They will lift weights and have meetings.
