Saints News, 8/24/15: Keenan Lewis, Kenny Vaccaro Return to Practice

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: Starting cornerback Keenan Lewis and nickel corner Delvin Breaux fully participated in team and individual drills. And safety Kenny Vaccaro made a brief cameo during the last set of team drills, though he sat out most of the team and individual drills. Players have Monday off, so it’s likely Vaccaro will be closer to full speed Tuesday.
