LB Knight Returns to Practice Field

LB Roger Knight returned to the practice field today at coaching sessions. The Saints official website also reports that Knight was not wearing a knee brace.

Knight tore the ACL in his right knee in the Saints' victory over the Atlanta Falcons on December 9, 2001. He was signed off the Saints' practice squad during the previous week, and placed on injured reserve on December 12, 2001 after having surgery.

Knight, a 6'0, 245 pound rush linebacker from Wisconsin was a rookie last year and was on the Saints' practice squad most of the season.
