METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints linebacker Victor Butler returned to practice on what he described as a "super limited" basis Tuesday for the first time since he tore his anterior cruciate knee ligament in June.

Butler
Butler remains a long shot to return to the Saints' active roster this season. But Tuesday was the deadline for players on the physically unable to perform list to begin practicing this season. The Saints now have a 21-day window to decide if they want to activate Butler or place him on season-ending injured reserve.

"I know where I hope to be [in three weeks]. But 21 days feels like a lifetime away from now," said Butler, who said he is physically able to do everything now -- but still in moderation.

In Payton speak that means he is starting Thursday. A hang nail means retirement.

I think it means he breathed in and out without issue for 2 minutes.

Re: Butler returns on 'super limited' basis

We have 3 games to decide if he'll be ready for a playoff run.

i like the idea of Butler and Harralson as depth.
