Byrd had been limited in practice for most of trraining camp prior to Tuesday's practice.

However, he was a full go on Tuesday and should see his first action in a game as a Saint against the Colts after missing exhibition victories at St. Louis on Aug. 8 and against Tennessee in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome last Friday.

Byrd, a three-time Pro Bowler who joined the Saints in March on the first day of free agency, has the most interceptions (22) among NFL safties since entering the league in 2009.
