Saints Conduct Final Heavy Practice in UK

    <span style="">The New Orleans Saints concluded their final full practice of the week today at their team hotel. The Saints went through a lengthy practice that saw them on the field at 10:30 and last until roughly 1:00 p.m.  

Following the practice the majority of players went through a final weight-lifting session and then retreated to their rooms to pack their luggage, as the team will now transfer to a new headquarters in downtown London.

The Saints will go through a light practice session tomorrow at Wembley Stadium, the site of Sunday afternoon's game.

"This has been a good week of practice," said QB Drew Brees. "Besides the fact that we are far from home, almost everything from a practice and preparation standpoint has been the same for us."

LB Jonathan Vilma echoed Brees' sentiments when asked about the week of the practice the Saints have experienced. "The week has been much more normal than I thought it would be," said Vilma. "It's been practice, meetings, film work and a little bit of free time at night. That's pretty much the same way it is back home. I think it's been a good week for us and we are ready for the game."
