Saints Preseason News: Training Camp Over, Team Won't Practice Until Monday

This is A SAFETY!!!!! - Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Spor

Training Camp officially ended with Thursday's practice, and now the team will be gearing up for the all-important Game 3 of preseason (Aug. 25, 4:00 pm Eastern live on FOX!), followed by roster cuts to head into the regular season. Before 4:00 pm Eastern (!) on August 27, teams must have their active roster trimmed to 75, and then down to 53 on August 31.


FYI - Tusk!!'s debut with Jets last night...6 carries, 13 yards and a long of 8. No idea how long he was on stationary bike on sideline. Or even if he was on the bike at all. I'm a rampant rumor speculator.
