    The New Orleans Saints have been hit hard by a recent spat of injuries, but the team did get a bit of good news Tuesday with the return of two key contributors. All-purpose running back Darren Sproles, who missed the last week and Friday's 27-24 preseason loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars while resting a sore knee, and backup defensive end Turk McBride (ankle) returned to practice. The two likely won't play Saturday night against the Houston Texans, but they are closing in on being fully healthy, Saints interim coach Joe Vitt said. "I think that if this was a regular season game, both players would go this week," Vitt said. "Darren has been running real well in his rehab. Turk has been doing a good job with his running. They were both introduced today to the individual periods. They were non-contact. I think they are coming along a little faster than we thought."
