Don't know who Sean Canfield is? Don't feel so bad.
He was a seventh-round pick in last year's draft who yo-yoed between the practice squad and the active roster. With Drew Brees in a contract dispute and backup quarterback Chase Daniel out with a hairline fracture to his right thumb, Canfield was the team's leader for at least a day.
"Hey QB 1, How you feeling today?" fullback Jed Collins asked Canfield, according to James Varney of The Times-Picayune.
Varney noted that Canfield and recently signed quarterback Luke McCown struggled with incompletions and interceptions throughout the session. Daniel -- who has done a passable Brees impression at practice -- watched with his hand bandaged.
"Chase Daniel hit his throwing arm thumb on a helmet the other day," coach Joe Vitt said at a press conference Wednesday. "We could describe this as a sprain, but there's a little hairline fracture there, so he's not going to be able to throw for probably about the next two-and-a-half weeks."
Darren Sproles was also out for an undisclosed reason.
This strange offseason keeps getting stranger in New Orleans. Brees' contract struggle can't end soon enough.
