Saints News, 8/1/14: Champ Bailey Out, Cam Jordan Limited At Saints Camp

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: Saints cornerback Champ Bailey was not in attendance at Friday's practice after missing Thursday afternoon's walk-through. Coach Sean Payton declined to specify the reason, though he indicated that it was injury-related. Cameron Jordan was also held out of most of Friday's practice. Although he was dressed in full pads, he didn't participate in contact drills. Also missing practice Friday for the Saints were guard Ben Grubbs (undisclosed), receiver Kenny Stills (quad), defensive tackle John Jenkins (pectoral), cornerback Terrence Frederick (undisclosed), receiver Steve Hull (undisclosed) and offensive tackle Ty Nsekhe (undisclosed).

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell explains decision on Ray Rice suspension
"Our policy is clear on this case," Goodell told reporters Friday in Canton, Ohio, as part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame festivities. "We have a very firm policy on domestic violence and it is not acceptable in the NFL. He obviously went through the process of evaluating the issue. You look at all of that to determine how that individual is reacting to it. I think what's important here is that Ray is being accountable for it. He recognizes he made a horrible mistake and he knows what he did is unacceptable by his standards and by our standards.
