(8/28/2013) Quarterback Luke McCown will start the Saints' final preseason game Thursday at Miami and play about a quarter, according to the team's website. Rookie Ryan Griffin will play the rest of the game.
Griffin, who went undrafted out of Tulane, is 17 for 28 passing for 182 yards and a touchdown in the preseason. He has not thrown an interception.
“He has handled this transition very well for a first-year player,” coach Sean Payton said. “He’s able to digest and spit out the terminology pretty fluidly and pretty quickly. I think that’s helped him. He’s got a demeanor that you would want at that position.”
