Saints Already Eyeing Sunday Night Opener
Saints running back Antonio Pittman catches his foot on defensive tackle Antwan Lake 's foot during day five of practice at Millsaps College Tuesday morning.
The New Orleans Saints are still five days away from Sunday's first preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but running back Deuce McAllister wishes it was today.
"Man, its still five days away?" McAllister asked. "I think our guys are starting to get tired of beating up on each other. We're ready for another team to go up against."
The Saints had two practices today for the fifth day in a row. The morning was spent at Millsaps while the afternoon practice was at Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium.
The team has stayed relatively healthy, though coach Sean Payton said defensive end Rob Ninkovich is likely out about four weeks with a strained knee ligament incurred Monday afternoon.
The Saints practice twice again Wednesday, at 8:50 a.m. at Harper Davis Field on the Millsaps campus and at 3:40 p.m. on the Millsaps lower practice field.
The Saints will play the Steelers Sunday night in the Hall of Fame Game at Canton , Ohio . The game is set for 7 p.m. and will be televised by the NFL Network.
