WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va.-- Those in attendance at practice today saw Champ Bailey for the first time since July 31.
The cornerback suffered an undisclosed injury and has alternated between sitting out or riding a stationary bike. He spent some time Monday jogging in an end zone with Drew Brees and Kenny Stills.

QB Drew Brees, K Shayne Graham, CB Champ Bailey, CB Patrick Robinson, CB Rob Sweeting, FB Erik Lorig, S Ty Zimmerman, OL Jahri Evans, OL Ty Nsekhe, WR Kenny Stills, TE Je'Ronn Hamm, LB Victor Butler.
-- Kenny Stills ramped up his rehab work by doing some work between the cones. Brees later threw passes to Stills with Bailey in coverage.
