NEW ORLEANS, LA (NBC33) — The New Orleans Saints took the field for practice one of 15 of the 2011 training camp. Plenty of new faces wore the Black and Gold today.
A couple notes about the running backs. Of course, Reggie Bush was not there he is now a Miami Dolphin. Pierre Thomas split snaps with Lynell Hamilton and a slew of other ball carriers. Chris Ivory was off to the side, not taking part in drills, but jogging and testing his knee. The Saints did sign RB Darren Sproles to a 4-year contract Thursday but he will be out until the NFL year starts the first week of August. Thomas was a little rusty coming off of his injury last year, fumbling twice.
Tune in to NBC33 at 5 and 10 p.m. for more on the Saints and the upcoming season.
