The New Orleans Saints football team is watching Tropical Storm Isaac closely.  The Saints are scheduled to play the Tennessee Titans Thursday night in their final preseason game of the year in Nashville.

Interim head coach Joe Vitt said yesterday that the team was watching the storm and would make a decision soon on when to leave New Orleans for Nashville.

Our players will be back here at eight o’clock on Tuesday and at such time, we’ll receive an update and see where this weather’s taking us. If need be, we will have wheels up and go to Tennessee Tuesday morning at eight o’clock. If we can get our regular practice in, we will get it in here, leave after practice and we’ll evaluate it from there.

The Saints and Titans game is this Thursday August 30th at 7:00 p.m. and it will be televised on Cox Sports TV.
