Saints defensive end Marcus Davenport took an important step Thursday towards making his season debut.

The former first round pick returned to practice for the first time in the regular season. He was listed as limited on the official injury report.

Davenport has been been out for several weeks with an elbow injury. He started 13 games for the Saints last season, recording six sacks and three forced fumbles.

Defensive end Trey Hendrickson, who has started in place of Davenport in the first two games of the season, was limited with a groin injury. The Saints hope to have one or both of them back for their Sunday night showdown with Green Bay.

Wide receiver Michael Thomas (ankle) and defensive tackle Malcom Brown (foot) did not practice Thursday.

Packers star receiver Devante Adams missed a second straight practice with a hamstring injury. He is reportedly ‘feeling better’ since the injury suffered this past Sunday but it’s ‘too soon to tell’ if he’ll play at New Orleans.

Rookie tight end Josiah Deguara (shin/ankle) was the only other Green Bay player to miss Thursday’s practice due to injury after being limited Wednesday.
