Cool David back in practice

Posted by Mike Triplett, Times-Picayune staff writer

The Saints are on the mend, both on the field and in the training room. They have just one name on their injury report this week - cornerback Jason David, who returned to practice in limited fashion Thursday for the first time since fracturing his left forearm in Week 3 against Tennessee.

David is not expected to play in Sunday's game against Atlanta, but he's getting closer to returning.

The Falcons, meanwhile, have a little more turbulence on their roster, starting with the quarterback position. Coach Bobby Petrino announced Wednesday that he's turning the reins over to Byron Leftwich, the former Jacksonville starter who signed with the Falcons on Sept. 18.

Leftwich, 27, is a big, strong-armed quarterback at 6-foot-5, 250 pounds. He is known for not being very mobile, but he's also hard to take down.

"He can throw from his ankles," joked Saints linebacker Brian Simmons, who faced Leftwich while he was with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Saints Coach Sean Payton said it won't be too difficult to adjust the game plan against the Falcons, who used Joey Harrington at quarterback in the first six games of the season.

"Well, you've got a body of work from his career in Jacksonville, and then you're looking at the offense that they currently are running," Payton said. "There's some scheme things, and they're not going to revamp the whole playbook. So we have to be able to adjust and make adjustments as we see fit during the course of the game."

Re: David back in practice

Always nervous about a player returning from time away from action to face us. The potential for a "career day" is always there.

Re: David back in practice

Craft did a decent job last week. Young got picked on because he is a rookie but I can tell that he will be a good fit. I hope he continues to get more reps. I dont need to see David in anything but the Dime.
