Three consecutive wins for the New Orleans Saints have pulled them to .500 at the midway point of the season, and they're hoping to make it 4 straight on Sunday when they host the Tennessee Titans.

To earn a win, the Saints are hoping to have several players on the field that did not practice today.

Wide receiver Willie Snead (knee), linebackers Ramon Humber (hamstring), Dannell Ellerbe (hip) and Hau'oli Kikaha (ankle), offensive tackle Terron Armstead (knee) and cornerback Damian Swann (concussion) all sat out practice with injury.

Wide receiver Marques Colston, guard Jahri Evans and defensive tackle Kevin Williams all sat out with a veterans' day. All three have sat out Wednesday's practice for rest the last few weeks.

On a positive note, cornerback Keenan Lewis (hip), linebacker David Hawthorne (hamstring) and offensive tackle Andrus Peat (knee) all fully practiced today.

Kickoff Sunday between the Saints and Titans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome is set for noon.
