ESPN - [Full Article]

Running back C.J. Spiller was absent from New Orleans Saints practice again Tuesday, according to reports. Coach Sean Payton didn’t address Spiller’s status afterward.

Spiller was on the field for limited work on Sunday and Monday. But he hasn’t returned to full-team work since missing last Friday’s scrimmage. A source described Friday’s absence as a minor issue and just a "day of rest." It’s unclear if Tuesday’s absence is related to the same issue.

Either way, the Saints' new runner/receiver is looking questionable for Thursday’s preseason opener at the Baltimore Ravens.

Veteran receiver Marques Colston watched from the side Tuesday, according to reports -- which could have been a routine day of rest. He, too, might be limited in the preseason opener since the Saints typically take it easy with Colston in the preseason.
