Defensive end Glenn Foster and safety Isa Abdul-Quddus did not participate at New Orleans Saints practice on Wednesday. They were on stationary bicycles while their teammates, including repatriated wide receiver Robert Meachem, stretched and participated in individual drills during the period the media were allowed to observe.
Both Quddus and Foster left the preseason finale against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday early. Quddus hurt his ankle while covering the opening kickoff from teammate Thomas Morstead, and Foster tweaked an ankle in the fourth quarter.
Wide receiver Nick Toon also left the Dolphins game early with a chest injury, but he was participating in practice on Wednesday. Outside linebackers Junior Galette (leg) and Martez Wilson (elbow) participated in practice fully after missing all of the preseason games and many training sessions.
Foster, an undrafted rookie now wearing No. 97, led the Saints in the preseason with four sacks. Quddus, in his third year with the Saints, is one of five safeties New Orleans is carrying on its 53-man roster.
Though they practiced, the Saints on Wednesday said they listed the following players on the injury report filed with the league: Toon; wide receiver Marques Colston (foot); running back Travaris Cadet (foot); right tackle Zach Strief (back); guard Jahri Evans (back); linebacker Kevin Reddick (shoulder) and tackle Terron Armstead (stomach).
