Bunkley one of five Saints to miss practice

METAIRIE, La. -- Five players were held out of the New Orleans Saints' first practice of the week Wednesday, but there is only one starter on the list -- defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley (back).

Also held out of team drills were linebacker Keyunta Dawson (calf), safety Rafael Bush (ankle), tight end Josh Hill (hamstring) and offensive tackle Terron Armstead (nose).

Meanwhile, backup defensive end Glenn Foster (knee) returned to practice on a limited basis after missing the last two games. Everyone else practiced fully.

Overall, that's a pretty solid injury report for a team this late in the season as it prepares for a Week 15 trip to St. Louis.
