After a lengthy Wednesday injury report that saw 5 New Orleans starters missing practice entirely, Thursday's report isn't quite as bad.

All-Pro tight end Jimmy Graham (foot) returned to practice Thursday on a limited basis, as did All-Pro guard Jahri Evans (hip). However, three starters remain sidelined throughout practice. Safety Malcolm Jenkins (knee) defensive end Cam Jordan (ankle), and linebacker David Hawthorne (toe). Jenkins (pictured) missed last Sunday's matchup in New York against the Jets.

Wide receiver Marques Colston (knee) was limited for the second straight day, while safety Kenny Vaccaro (chest) full participated, after being limited on Wednesday.

The following Saints are listed on the injury report, but practiced fully on Thursday, making it likely they will play Sunday night. The players include running back Darren Sproles (concussion), tight end Josh Hill (foot), defensive end Tyrunn Walker (Knee), defensive tackle Tom Johnson (Hip), linebacker Curtis Lofton (Hamstring), and safety Roman Harper (Knee).

New Orleans (6-2) hosts the Dallas Cowboys (5-4) Sunday night with a 7:30 kickoff.
