According to pool reporter John Czarnecki of FOX Sports, the Saints scaled back Thursday’s practice by 20 minutes and worked mostly in shorts and shells as opposed to pads.
Saints RB Lynell Hamilton (ankle) was the only player that didn’t participate. Coach Sean Payton says he is “hopeful” Hamilton will be available for Super Bowl XLIV.
TE Jeremy Shockey (knee, toe) did practice, though the extent of his participation is unknown. He was likely limited, as usual.
The Saints are healthier than the Colts heading to Sunday. Hamilton, a fourth-stringer, is New Orleans’ only player whose status is in doubt. Two Indianapolis starters are questionable.
