Vitt: "It Was Good To Get Everybody Back Into The Flow Of Things."

Opening Statement:

“Akiem Hicks was the only player that did not participate in the workout today because of the hand and we are hoping to get him back on the field by Sunday or Monday. No injuries in practice today. It was a crisp practice; it was good to get everybody back into the flow of things.”

How was your first practice with Drew Brees kind of leading the troops again?

“Outstanding. I don’t think anybody’s eyes lied to him. You guys were here and saw the practice. Excellent tempo, excellent ball location, in and out of the huddle, up and down, on and off, outstanding”

What about your young receivers out there? What did you see from them today?

“You could see from the springtime how they have gained confidence in the route-running, knowing the area of the field they have to get to, catching the ball outside the framework of their body. I thought Joe Morgan had a great catch today. Our receivers really battled for some long balls and won. I think that’s an element that number nine brings to the huddle. He’s going to put the ball on location and give you a chance to catch it.”

I know you’ve seen some of those running backs, Mark Ingram and Chris Ivory coming back from lower body injuries in the offseason, during the week. To see them go at this speed, they looked ready to go?

“Mark looked good at the conditioning test and so did Chris. I think they had a good first day. This is a process, and this is the first day, but for the first day they preformed very well. “

Sounds like it was a great, first day.

Good to hear M.I. is looking like he is in week 4 of the season.
