Thursday night Saints

Thursday evening update on the New Orleans Saints.

--WR Joe Horn missed a second straight day of practice on Thursday with a bone contusion in his left knee. Horn continues to be listed as questionable for Sunday's game with the Texans.
   --LDE Charles Grant was able to practice Thursday despite a strained left calf muscle. Grant, who did not work Wednesday, is still probable for the Texans.
   --DT Henry Ford, who had surgery to remove bone spurs from his ankle in late August, practiced for the second straight day Thursday, but remains doubtful for Sunday.
   --WLB Derrick Rodgers worked with the first-team defense again Thursday and will start Sunday in place of second-year player James Allen.
   Rodgers missed the season opener while serving a one-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy.
