After being limited in practice Wednesday, cornerback Keenan Lewis and linebacker Curtis Lofton fully participated in Thursday’s session, the second in preparation for a Week 2 game at Cleveland this upcoming Sunday.
Lewis had been limited in practice with a knee issue on Wednesday. Lofton had been limited with a hurt shoulder.
Three players who missed Sunday’s season-opening loss at Atlanta this past Sunday again appeared on the Saints’ injury report Thursday. Wide receiver Kenny Stills (quad) was limited, and safety Marcus Ball (hamstring) as well as fullback Erik Lorig (ankle) were out.
Stills was also limited Wednesday, when Ball and Lorig were out, too.
Stills’ quad injury has been lingering since around late June. Ball has been out since after the second preseason game of 2014, and Lorig has been sidelined since he hurt his ankle in an intrasquad scrimmage in West Virginia on Aug. 2.
Stills was participating in individual drills in a brief portion of practice open to the media. Lorig and Ball worked on a stationary bicycle.
For Cleveland (0-1), running back Ben Tate has been ruled out of Sunday’s game with a knee injury. Star tight end Jordan Cameron (shoulder) and former LSU pass rusher Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) were two players who did not practice Wednesday.
Another Browns player who did not practice on Wednesday was defensive lineman John Hughes (hamstring), but he was limited Thursday. Tight end Joe Thomas was out Wednesday for a reason not related to an injury, but he was back Thursday.
Defensive lineman Desmond Bryant (wrist) and offensive lineman Paul McQuistan (ankle) were limited Thursday as they were Wednesday.
