CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Saints coach Sean Payton says he shortened practice by about 20 minutes on Thursday because he wants to keep his players fresh for Sunday's Super Bowl.

Payton says he was satisfied by the work his team got in during a humid day in which temperatures were close to 80 degrees. The Saints worked outdoors on the campus of the University of Miami and removed their shoulder pads for the last 40 minutes of practice.

Reserve running back and special teams regular Lynell Hamilton did not practice for a second straight day but did some light jogging on his sore left ankle.

The Saints get two weeks to prepare for the game against the Indianapolis Colts, so Payton says he's not concerned about limiting the length of practice.
