METAIRIE, La. — Saints safety Roman Harper was full go in practice a day after a rib injury limited him as New Orleans readies for Sunday’s game at the New York Giants.

Tackle Charles Brown (right knee) was held out for the eighth consecutive practice while cornerback Corey White (left knee) didn’t practice a day after being full.

White said he tweaked his knee in practice Wednesday, delaying even further his recovery.

“It’s very frustrating, especially with me coming in the last couple of games that I played, played pretty good,” said White, who had a Grade I sprain of his MCL and PCL.

The rest of the roster was full, including defensive end Martez Wilson, who missed Wednesday with a toe injury.

Harper missed nearly 14 plays against Atlanta, playing sporadically with the right rib injury.

Thursday, interim coach Joe Vitt said Harper looked good in practice.
