After being placed on injured reserve following week 7, veteran wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. was back on the New Orleans Saints practice field today.

Ginn Jr. is eligible to return to the Saints 53 man roster immediately, but must be activated sometime in the next 21 days if he's to play again this season or postseason.

If New Orleans is going to activate him before Sunday's game, they're more likely to wait until this weekend as it allows them to have one extra player on the active roster  until then.

Ginn Jr. has 12 receptions for 135 yards and a pair of touchdowns this season in limited time, but his return could help a Saints wide receiving core that currently lacks a deep field threat.
