The New Orleans Saints saw a few key players return to the practice field on Thursday as they continue to battle through injuries.

Only one Saint did not participate in practice, that being offensive lineman Andrus Peat (MCL) who is not expected to play for several more weeks.

Eight players practiced on a limited basis, several of which were out yesterday.

Offensive lineman Terron Armstead (knee), cornerback Keenan Lewis(hip/stomach) and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (hip) practiced on a limited basis after missing Wednesday's practice.

Punter Thomas Morstead (quad), linebacker Ramon Humber (thigh), defensive back Damian Swann (head), guard Tim Lelito (shoulder), and wide receiver Marques Colston (shoulder) were all limited for the second straight day.

Safety Jairus Byrd (knee) practice fully.

The Saints (2-4) travel to Indianapolis this Sunday for a matchup with the Colts (3-3). Kickoff is set for noon.
