Saints flee Isaac, practice in Cincinnati

CINCINNATI (AP) - The New Orleans Saints practiced downtown on a sunny, 87-degree afternoon Tuesday, their minds not far from what was going on back home.

The Saints (No. 9 in the AP Pro32) fled New Orleans on Monday with Hurricane Isaac building in the Gulf. The Bengals gave permission for them to practice on their grass field across the street from Paul Brown Stadium on Tuesday afternoon, after Cincinnati was done for the day.

New Orleans will head to Tennessee on Wednesday and get ready for its final preseason game against the Titans on Thursday.

It's the latest disruption in a season full of them for the Saints, who were staggered by penalties for their bounty program in the offseason.
