Visiting the Steelers on a surprising three-game skid, the Saints are out to pen their own comeback story _lowres

The New Orleans Saints may be much healthier after the long weekend earned by playing on Thursday last week.

Left tackle Terron Armstead (knee), wide receiver Marques Colston (shoulder), left guard Tim Lelito (shoulder), cornerback Damian Swann (concussion) and punter Thomas Morstead (right quadricep) all participated in the portion of practice open to the media.

Cornerback Keenan Lewis, who saw a specialist about his hip injury earlier this week, and rookie tackle Andrus Peat, who will reportedly miss four weeks with an MCL sprain, were both not present at practice.

Lewis, who underwent surgery on the hip during the preseason and missed the first three games, has been on a limited snap count ever since returning. The veteran corner is averaging just 17 snaps per game in the three games he’s played.
