New Orleans Saints mailbag for Sept. 24, part 1

Another round of mailbag questions to start your day.

We'll have another round later this afternoon.

I'm fresh out of new queries for this week, so if you have any new questions send them to And remember to include your name and place of residence. We need those for publication. I'll answer them on Friday.

Q: I was just wondering why we didn't see Lynell Hamilton play against the Lions, and was wondering are we going to get to see him play sometime this year? Johnny Dupre, Houma, La.

A: Good timing, Johnny. It looks like this is the week for Hamilton. With Mike Bell and Pierre Thomas banged up, the Saints are down to their No. 3 back. Hamilton told reporters on Wednesday that he received a number of reps with the No. 1 offense and expects a heavy workload this week against Buffalo. I think the coaches wanted to get Hamilton in the game against Detroit but rode Bell’s hot hand once the game started. This is his chance to carry the load and I'm sure the seldom-used young back is excited about the opportunity. I know the Saints are confident in his ability and I'm sure they're eager to see what he can do in regular-season game. Sunday against the Bills, Hamilton will get his big chance.
