Saints' Unger showing progress in return from foot surgery

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Saints starting center Max Unger had his No. 60 jersey pulled down over shoulder pads and wore his helmet - a new look this training camp for a central figure on the offensive line that protects record setting quarterback Drew Brees, and an uplifting development for a squad that could use some good news on the injury front.

"It's awesome to see Max" on the field in pads, right tackle Zach Strief said after Monday's practice. "He got about 800, `Oh! Max is here!' comments today, so I think everyone's excited and I know he's feeling really good. He's been saying for a couple weeks now that he's probably a good bit ahead of where he thought he would be at this point."

The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Unger has been on the New Orleans' physically unable to perform list since camp opened because of offseason foot surgery. He isn't participating fully in practice yet, but could be seen moving vigorously near the edge of the practice field while engaging in light contact drills. His ramping up of on-field work raises the prospects of him meeting or beating his goal of being ready to play by Week 1 of the regular season.
