Thursday's injury/practice participation report is a little better for the New Orleans Saints, who saw starting center Max Unger return to the practice field on a limited basis.

Unger missed yesterday's practice with a hand injury.

Both squads had a number of key players listed on today's report, but the majority of New Orleans players who were limited yesterday were full participants today, a good sign they'll play on Sunday night barring any setbacks.

Minnesota (4-2-1) hosts New Orleans (5-1) this Sunday night.
