Notes: Mark Ingram was held out of practice, but Vitt said that was part of a plan to ease the running back into training camp following arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in early May. ... TE Dave Thomas missed practice with a sore back. ... Morstead, who agreed to a six-year, $21.9 million extension Thursday night, joked that he was nervous during Friday's practice because he still hadn't signed the deal. He added it is hard to celebrate a new contract in the midst of training camp, when the team stays in a hotel and has bed check. "I just laid up in bed for four hours last night staring at the ceiling," Morstead said. "I was in the cold tub at 7 in the morning ... so life hasn't changed too much yet." ... The Saints plan to practice with full pads for the first time Saturday evening, which also would be the first practice opened to the public — if rain doesn't force it indoors for a third straight day.
