SAINTS-COLTS

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees should be back at his old job Saturday night, leading the Saints prolific offense against Indianapolis.

Colts receiver Reggie Wayne hopes he'll be lucky enough to play.

Brees has recovered from a strained left oblique muscle in time to play in the most significant week of the preseason. He's seen limited action this month in an effort to get healthy.

Wayne has not played in a game since mid-October when he tore the ACL in his right knee.

While he says he's ready, coach Chuck Pagano has played it safe with his six-time Pro Bowler. Pagano calls him a game-time decision.

COACHES ALL-SEC

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama and LSU both placed 11 players on the coaches' preseason All-Southeastern Conference teams.

The SEC teams released on Thursday had representatives from all 14 teams and half of them had seven or more selections.

The Crimson Tide placed eight on the first-team, including Christion Jones as both an all-purpose player and return specialist.

Coaches aren't allowed to vote for their own players.

Auburn's Nick Marshall was the first-team quarterback, followed by Mississippi's Bo Wallace and Mississippi State's Dak Prescott. Georgia's Todd Gurley and South Carolina's Mike Davis outpolled T.J. Yeldon of Alabama at running back.

The SEC season opens Thursday, Aug. 28 with No. 9 South Carolina facing Texas A&M in the first game on the new SEC Network.

TIGERS-RAYS

UNDATED (AP) -- David Price allowed only one hit in his first start against his former team, an RBI triple to Brandon Guyer, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Detroit Tigers 1-0 Thursday to avoid a three-game sweep.

Ben Zobrist reached on a throwing error by shortstop Eugenio Suarez scored on Guyer's hit. Price then retired his final 23 batters, nine on strikeouts, to finish an eight-inning complete game.

Alex Cobb (9-6) scattered two hits, walked two and struck out six over seven innings, improving to 7-0 in his last 10 starts. After Brad Boxberger worked out of an eighth-inning jam, Jake McGee got three outs for his 14th save and complete a four-hitter.

Kevin Kiermaier, inserted as a defensive replacement in right field, made diving catch on Rajai Davis' flare with a runner on second and one out in the eighth.

CHIEFS-BUCCANEERS TRADE

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Chiefs have acquired safety Kelcie McCray from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for offensive guard Rishaw Johnson in a move that should bolster depth for both teams.

McCray entered the league with Miami as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas State. He's appeared in 15 games over the past two seasons with the Dolphins and Buccaneers.

The Chiefs are desperate for help at safety, particularly with Eric Berry still dealing with a nagging heel injury. Undrafted rookie Daniel Sorensen has been pressed into a starting role.

Johnson has appeared in three games over parts of two seasons for Kansas City. He had slid down the depth chart after the Chiefs acquired several other linemen in the draft and free agency.
