Lance Moore loses red practice jersey

New Orleans Times-Picayune - [Full Article]

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Lance Moore moved one step closer to regaining his starting job when Coach Sean Payton removed the player's red jersey Sunday which has made him off limits to the defense through the first 17 days of training camp.

Moore has been practicing on a limited basis to make sure his surgically-repaired right shoulder is fit for full contact work.

"I'm in practice; I'm not sitting out any periods anymore,'' Moore said. "The defense is a little bit antsy to get their hands on me and try to hit me a little bit. The coaches haven't really said anything if I'm going to work live against the Houston Texans this week in practice or if I'm going to play in the game Saturday night. I'm just kind of playing it by ear.''
