METAIRIE, La. ― Tight end Jeremy Shockey was dressed Sunday afternoon for practice but the Saints held him back with a sore knee.

'We rested Shockey with a sore knee,' Head Coach Sean Payton said. 'Nothing serious. Got it look at today. We'll get him some treatment and get him back as soon as possible.'

Payton didn't elaborate on which knee was involved nor what happened.

Shockey missed the final three regular season games of 2009 with a bum right knee.
