Here's a look at this morning's local coverage of the four NFC South teams. 

SAINTS

  • Tight end Jeremy Shockey, who has been brought along slowly as he recovers from a broken fibula, is expected to play in this week's preseason game against Cincinnati.
  • Cornerback Jason David may be falling behind rookie Tracy Porter on the depth chart.

PANTHERS

  • Rookie tackle Jeff Otah allegedly had his SUV stolen by one of Charlotte's most-wanted criminals.
  • Time for the annual story on how this finally will be a breakout year for linebacker Thomas Davis.

BUCCANEERS

FALCONS

  • Here's a comparison of the preseason stats for the four Atlanta quarterbacks. Bottom line here: If rookie Matt Ryan plays well this week, he'll be the starter on opening day. If not, the Falcons will revert to veteran Chris Redman.
  • Defensive end John Abraham, who'd been out with an ankle injury since the first preseason game, has returned to practice.
