Saints CB Keenan Lewis said the Saints put a bullseye on their buses when they drive into games at Philadelphia for the eggs that fans throw at them. "I'll be kind of excited. I like to sit by the bullseye and see who's got the best aim out there," Lewis said. "They kinda missed last time (in the 2013-14 playoffs). So hopefully they worked on their aim during their training camp as well."

Saints starting LT Terron Armstead (knee) and starting LG Tim Lelito (back) both missed practice Thursday. RG Jahri Evans (knee) was limited.

Saints K Zach Hocker said he understands it's part of the business for Saints to try out other kickers after his 30-yd FG miss. "I was one of those guys last year that when guys struggled I was bouncing around the country doing the exact same thing." But he was thankful Saints had the faith to stick with him. ... Hocker admitted "last week was tough" but said the field goal group bounced back, had great week of practice and still has "tons of confidence."

The Saints' offensive line is banged up. LT Terron Armstead and LG Tim Lelito both did not participate in the early portion of Saints practice that was open to the media Thursday. Armstead is nursing a knee injury. It's unknown what kept Lelito off the field since he practiced Wednesday. RG Jahri Evans was participating in Thursday's practice, but his status remains uncertain for Sunday's game at Philadelphia since he is still recovering from a recent minor knee surgery.
