Saints News, 9/8/15: Khiry Robinson says via Twitter he returned to pads Monday

From Katherine Terrell at NOLA.com: "First day back in pads and Feeling like new money aka Crisp! Week 1 lets go Too blessed to be stressed!," Robinson said via Twitter on Monday afternoon. Monday would be considered a "bonus" practice, which is not part of their usual schedule, but sometimes held when the team didn't have a game the prior Sunday. It was closed to the media, so there's no indication whether Robinson how much he participated. His tweet would indicate good news for the injured running back.
