METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

The Saints get a harsh reminder of what it's like to practice in Louisiana heat. The team was out on the practice field in Metairie on Tuesday.

Along with the heat comes the return of a player who had been limited due to injury. With that hit on Mark Ingram, the Saints welcomed back their Pro Bowl safety and prized free agent Jairus Byrd.

"Yeah, it definitely felt good to get that contact out the way and just get back in the swing of things," said Byrd.

"Adjusting to this heat out here is new."

"You have one of those Pro Bowl guys who's been out for a while, everybody's been anticipating his return and we're just happy to have him back," added Junior Galette.

Byrd has been limited this offseason following a back procedure, but he's now full go and expects to play this Saturday night.
