Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell on the batted ball controversy at the end of Monday night's Lions-Seahawks game: “After a certain point, you’ve just got to stop talking about it. After the game was over with, it was done, and we moved on. Nothing you can do about it. It doesn’t help you to lament or anything of that nature. It may make you feel good for a moment, but it doesn’t make any difference in the grand scheme of things. So it makes sense to move on quickly.”

Drew Brees was participating in the early portion of Saints practice that was open to the media Wednesday, but LT Terron Armstead was not. Armstead played through an unspecified leg injury in last Sunday’s game. It’s too early in the week to predict if he is in jeopardy of missing this week’s game at the Philadelphia Eagles. If so, rookie first-round draft pick Andrus Peat would take his place.

For Broncos today tackle Ty Sambrailo (shoulder) not practicing, but was on the field working with strength and conditioning coach Luke Richesson so is making progress toward returning to lineup and wide receiver Cody Latimer (groin) was not practicing. Quarterback Peyton Manning looked to be sticking to the usual Wednesday schedule -- on field but not throwing in drills. Louis Vasquez, Evan Mathis and DeMarcus Ware held out largely as rest days.
