METAIRIE, La.  ― Receiver Lance Moore missed practice once again, resting his injured hamstring that he re-tweaked in Monday’s win over Atlanta.

Moore originally injured his hamstring a week ago, but was healthy enough to play early in the first half of Monday night’s game.

He was joined on the sideline Thursday by running back Mark Ingram (toe) and tight end John Gilmore (toe).

Ingram had been making progress, but had a setback on Wednesday, Saints coach Sean Payton said.

“Yesterday he got it again and had some soreness so we backed off today,” Payton said. “(We’ve) got to wait until it’s healthy. It’s real simple. Each week we’ll keep evaluating where he’s at with it.”

Linebacker Jonathan Vilma (left knee) and free safety Malcolm Jenkins (neck) were limited.

Cornerback Patrick Robinson (hip) and linebacker Jonathan Casillas (knee) were full.
