Saints head coach Sean Payton, genreral manager Micey Loomis, and assistant head coach Joe Vitt are still serving suspensions from the NFL, but they will be allowed to attend the Saints' game against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. Drew Brees has a chance to set a league record for consecutive games with a touchdown pass, and Payton, Loomis, and Vitt will be in the stands for the potentially special event, according to foxsports.com.
The trio will not be allowed on the sideline or to have any contact with the team, and will view the game from a private area.
Payton, Loomis, and Vitt were all suspended by the NFL in relation to a "bounty hunter" program that rewarded players for targeting and injuring key members of the opposition. Payton's ban is for the full season. Loomis is out for eight games, while Vitt is suspended for six.
The Saints have struggled in an 0-4 start without their head coach.
