Texans, Saints nix joint practices ahead of preseason game

HOUSTON -- The Texans and New Orleans Saints will not hold three joint practices in Houston leading up to their Aug. 20 preseason game, while they await the end of the NFL lockout.

The teams have practiced together in the previous three training camps, leading up to their preseason game. It has become a popular event among fans in the cities, separated by just 350 miles.

Last year, the teams practiced in New Orleans before playing at the Superdome.

The lockout is into its fourth month. Negotiations between players and owners continued Wednesday in New York.
