In a surprise, unannounced move Sean Payton showed up on the sideline today (weeks ahead of his announced timeline). Local media report this was part of Payton's plan to motivate his team for today's game against rival Atlanta. 

Jay Glazer reports that Payton plans to stay well behind the line of scrimmage in order to take away as much of the possibility as possible of being re-injured. 

A local media guy just tweeted wondering whether Payton is the first NFL coach to be on the sideline in a regular season game wearing shorts?
