.METAIRIE (AP) — The New Orleans Saints have released a training camp schedule that does not list any two-a-day practices, but all 15 practices and the intrasquad scrimmage is open to the public.
The first practice is scheduled for Friday morning. The last practice is listed as Aug. 18, the day before the Saints travel to Houston for a Saturday night game against the Texans.
The scrimmage will be Aug. 6, with the first preseason game in the Louisiana Superdome against San Francisco on Aug. 12.
Camp breaks after that game.
Saints right tackle Jon Stinchcomb says coaches haven’t told players how they’ll fill the time when they’d normally be in a second practice. Still, Stinchcomb likes the schedule, which he hopes will reduce players’ exposure to preseason injuries.
