METAIRIE, La. — Five key Saints players didn’t go through Wednesday’s session and two more were limited as New Orleans began preparations for Sunday night’s showdown with Dallas.
But running back Darren Sproles (concussion) was full after leaving the game against the Jets on the first drive.
Tight end Jimmy Graham (elbow/foot), defensive end Cameron Jordan (ankle), linebacker David Hawthorne (toe), safety Malcolm Jenkins (knee) and guard Jahri Evans (hip) all sat out.
Meanwhile, safety Kenny Vaccaro (chest) and receiver Marques Colston (knee) were limited.
Everyone else, including safety Roman Harper (knee), defensive end Tyrunn Walker (knee) and linebacker Curtis Lofton (hamstring), went full.
And defensive back Chris Carr was back on the roster after being released to make room for linebacker Jonathan Vilma's activation this past weekend. A corresponding move hasn't been announced by the Saints.
