Saints News, 8/17/16: Lewis & Anthony With Team, Performing Various Levels of Activity

New, comments

Keenan Lewis & Stephone Anthony, two major injury question marks for the Saints heading into the 2016 season, practiced with the Saints on Wednesday. Lewis was running, doing sideline to sideline sprints, whereas Anthony was dressed but only stretched and did not participate in any drills. Both good signs for two key cogs of the Saints' defense.
