Nesbit

WATFORD, England -- Jamar Nesbit returned to practice Wednesday after serving a four-game suspension, but that doesn't mean he'll instantly return to the starting left guard spot.

Nesbit was suspended for violating the NFL's policy on steroids and related substances. Rookie Carl Nicks played well in Nesbit's absence and there suddenly are some questions on the offensive line. Center Jonathan Goodwin and right guard Jahri Evans missed Wednesday's practice with injuries.

Coach Sean Payton said Nesbit possibly could move to one of those positions if Goodwin or Evans can't play Sunday against Dallas. Matt Lehr filled in at center after Goodwin went down with a knee injury early in last Sunday's loss to Carolina.
