Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey and safety Darren Sharper missed today's organized team activity at the Saints facility.

Head coach Sean Payton said both had family issues. Payton noted that Thursday's workout wasn't mandatory. Said Payton, "we plan to have those players in here real soon."

Running back Reggie Bush sat out this morning's workout. Payton said Bush was held out after taking part in two practices earlier this week.

Defensive tackle Rod Coleman missed Thursday's practice with what Payton calls a hamstring injury.
