Payton hopeful Lynell Hamilton will play

New Orleans Times-Picayune - [Full Article]

Saints coach Sean Payton cut back Thursday's practice about 20 minutes from the previous day and it was by design. He also limited team drills to eight snaps while also interspersing some special teams' work between offense and team defensive work.

Once again, the only key player who didn't participate in practice was running back Lynell Hamilton. However, Hamilton, a stout special teams' player and short-yardage runner, did some jogging on his sore left ankle under the eyes of the training staff.

"He's feeling better," Payton said of Hamilton. "I'm hopeful of him playing."
