In a welcome sight, the defense for the New Orleans Saints pulled a good “win” today in the team’s third practice, while the receiver battle continues to go on with some stumbling.

The Saints went to full pads today in a nice  practice for both sides.  There was a scare with running back Pierre Thomas who left briefly after going down, but he returned to continue drills.

Fellow running backs Darren Sproles, Mark Ingram, and Chris Ivory looked good again, with Ingram and Ivory both breaking out some nice runs against the defense.

The defense however countered with three takeaways and almost had four.  Safety Malcolm Jenkins had his hands on one pass but unfortunately couldn’t reel it in.  The rest of the secondary was a bit luckier.

Cornerback Jabari Greer intercepted quarterback Drew Brees when he jumped a route by fullback Jed Collins and returned it for a touchdown.  Cornerback Johnny Patrick hauled in an interception from quarterback Chase Daniels, leaping into the air right at the line of scrimmage.

Safety Isa Abdul-Quddus made an interception off of Brees as well, which in Brees’ defense, wasn’t entirely his fault.  Wide receiver Devery Henderson ran the wrong route causing the easy pick by Quddus.
