http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/10156754/Brees-confident-in-inexperienced-backups-Bushrod will be replaced by Strief, who took over late in the first half against the Bills after Bushrod couldn't continue.
"Those guys have been great," Brees said. "Strief, in particular, over the last three years he's had to step in from time to time and do some different things - whether it's to play left tackle, whether it's to play tight end, whether it's in goal-line situations.
"He's kind of a swingman. You can put him in anywhere," he said of Strief, a former seventh-round draft pick who's started one game in each of the last three seasons. "He gets the job done and does whatever he can to fill his role on the team. Now you see him potentially getting the opportunity to get some more significant playing time."
