AP – A person with knowledge of the decision says the New Orleans Saints are planning to practice this week at the home of the Dallas Cowboys after evacuating because of Hurricane Ida.
The Saints are scheduled to practice Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at AT&T Stadium before taking a break heading into the regular season.
That’s according to a person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the club wasn’t discussing its plans publicly.
