New Orleans coach Sean Payton announced Wednesday that rookie Terron Armstead, a third-round pick from Arkansas-Pine Bluff, would start at left tackle over Charles Brown. Brown was benched Sunday during the Saints loss at St. Louis. The New Orleans pass protection was particularly poor in the first half against the Rams, leading to the change by Payton.
