Cornerback Tracy Porter returns to New Orleans Saints practice in style
 
1 Attachment(s)
Cornerback Tracy Porter returned to practice for the New Orleans Saints on Friday after being sidelined by back spasms for the last two days. And he made his presence felt, intercepting quarterback Drew Brees during team drills.
It was believed to be the first pick thrown by Brees during team drills in camp this year. Porter stepped in front of receiver Courtney Roby to snag the ball, then ran untouched toward the end zone. The play was reminiscent of his game-clinching interception of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning in Super Bowl XLIV.
"Drew's a great quarterback. It's always tough to trying to pick him off. So you just hope that once you get him, you can keep it rolling," said Porter, who said the back spasms were nothing serious.
"Just something that comes with the wear and tear of training camp," he said.
Tight end Tory Humphrey (hamstring) and defensive end Jimmy Wilkerson (knee) also returned to the practice field for Friday morning's practice, which was cut short by about 45 minutes as the Saints were resting up for Saturday's 11 a.m. scrimmage.
Receiver Robert Meachem (toe), safety Darren Sharper (knee), linebacker Clint Ingram (knee), linebacker Scott Shanle (knee) and cornerback Patrick Robinson (hamstring) remained out of practice.

Nice interception. Can he challenge Sharper's numbers one day?
