WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- Saints coach Sean Payton is ending evening meetings with players an hour earlier at training camp this summer and starting practice an hour later in the mornings.Doing so gives players more time to enjoy the amenities at the luxury Greenbrier Resort in the mountains of West Virginia, should they choose -- but that was hardly the point.Coming off consecutive 7-9, non-playoff seasons, Payton figured there had to be ways to tweak the schedule to get better results. Decades ago, conventional wisdom might have dictated longer, more grueling practices to promote toughness, a stronger work ethic and better conditioning. But Payton, whos gained a reputation for embracing technology and progressive philosophies about managing the modern pro athlete, didnt see the wisdom of such old-school approaches in 2016.One of the things we are paying attention to, obviously, is the recovery and all the elements that go into that, Payton said as camp practices began this past week. A lot of it is the evening recovery -- trying to get the guys in the cold tubs, trying to get the guys really to sleep earlier. Then the (morning) schedule is even backed up ... with the idea of making sure that everyone is getting north of eight hours rest.Payton said there wasnt any specific study or new data that led him to emphasize rest and recovery so much as a sum total of what weve seen, read, and heard. Part of it was simply ensuring trainers had time to employ new technology that helps players maintain their bodies, such as air compression sleeves helping circulation and thus reducing swelling for even relatively healthy players. Saints players also can climb into a super-cooled chamber for a few minutes with the goal of supplying muscles with more oxygen-infused blood.Weve got a lot more gear now: the inflatable legs, the cryotherapy machine, Payton said. Theres a lot of other things that we have access to that weve got to take advantage of.More rest and recovery gives players a reason to take the Greenbriers pillow menu more seriously. But that emphasis wont turn Saints players into high-maintenance prima donnas, in Paytons view. Concepts of toughness, competitiveness and intensity are stressed during much of the day, particularly when players are on the field and in meetings.I credit coach Payton and his staff, man. He lets you know that what we did in the `60s and `70s and even in 2006 -- it may not work, said running back Tim Hightower, who resurrected his career last year after spending three years out of football because of complications related to reconstructive knee surgery. When you step on that field, youve got to go to work; its a physical game.But its another thing to have the awareness that your players need some down time. They need the tools, they need the resources to recover so we can be at our best day in and day out, and I think theres a huge emphasis on that.But then, when we step on that field, he wants a physical approach, a physical mindset, a tough, smart football team, and I like it, and I think guys are starting to understand, Hightower said.The Saints third practice of camp on Saturday was their first in full pads, and there were some heavy hits, highlighted by safety Kenny Vaccaro bursting through the offensive line and flattening fullback Sione Houma, who was blocking on a running play.The NFLs collective bargaining agreement now limits teams to one traditional practice per day. Teams also can stage additional walk-through practices without pads in place of what used to be the second practice of two-a-days. Those generally emphasize formations and positional soundness and arent run at full speed. The Saints have cut back on walk-throughs, but at times will lengthen their lone full-speed practice to nearly three hours.For us to get it the way its supposed to look, there might be some practices where were out here longer than normal, Payton said.Right tackle Zach Strief, an 11th -year veteran who has spent his whole career with New Orleans, said he could sense after one day that camp would be tougher, despite the added rest time.Theyre going to push us, Strief said. You really drive home the competition aspect of it, where its not OK to have a bad play or miss a block or miss an assignment.Game notes CB Keenan Lewis and LT Terron Armstead remained on the clubs physically unable to perform list, but Lewis could be seen working out on his own at close to full speed. ... DT Nick Fairley and S Erik Harris both left practice on Saturday. Payton did not provide details on their conditions.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Adidas Flames Jerseys .ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013.

Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he believes there is very little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the off-season. "I dont see anything that we need to add.

Already owning gold from competition in Vancouver in 2010, Loch posted a combined four-run time of 3:27.526. That included a track-record third run of 51. INDIANAPOLIS -- Kyle Busch spent Saturday climbing in and out of brutally hot cars in Indianapolis.All that work finally got him back to a pretty cool spot in Victory Lane -- and some ice cold water.After claiming two poles Saturday afternoon, Busch returned to the track and led all but one lap to win his second straight NASCAR Xfinity Series race at the track by 0.415 seconds over hard-charging Kevin Harvick. Paul Menard was third, 1.338 seconds off the pace.Id like to hope so, the 2015 Cup season champion said after being asked if he can keep this up after earning his seventh Xfinity win this season and record-extending 83rd of his career. I dont know exactly how many [races] I have left, thats changing every day. But, hopefully, with whatever we have left, we can have the same amount of success weve had here.Busch has been virtually unbeatable on Indys 2.5-mile oval all weekend.He posted the fastest practice times in both the Xfinity and Sprint Cup Series on Friday, won the poles, captured the first of two heat races to establish the rest of the starting order and put himself in position to secure his second straight sweep of the two races in Indy.No NASCAR driver has ever won both poles and both races here.The only prize Busch didnt claim Saturday was the $100,000 dash-for-cash prize, for which he was ineligible. That payout went to fifth-place finisher Justin Allgaier, who was the best of the non-Cup regulars. Allgaier said the thermometer in his car reached 137 degrees.How dominant has Busch been?The Joe Gibbs Racing sttar held off two former Brickyard 400 winners and one, Harvick, couldnt even catch the leader after taking new tires during the final caution period, which extended the race to 63 laps.ddddddddddddThe difference: Buschs perfectly timed restarts.New tires for those guys were good for them, not so much for us, Busch said after completing the final 36 laps without a stop. On the restarts, the second-to-last one was really good. The last one was OK.It was at least good enough.Busch surrendered the lead only once -- when he pitted after 27 laps -- and retook the lead when Brendan Gaughan made his pit stop.The only other time Buschs lead was even in jeopardy occurred after rookie Roy Black Jr. hit the wall in the second turn, slid down the track and was hit by Harrison Rhodes, bringing out a caution with six laps to go.Harvick, who drives for Stewart-Haas Racing, and Kyle Larson, who drives for Chip Ganassi Racing, both stopped and changed tires. But they wound up battling each other so hard that they couldnt catch Busch.Our goal was to overachieve today, and we did that, Harvick said. We had a couple of good restarts and wound up second. Not a bad day.Even if Buschs day was much more rewarding.I think our chances are pretty good, Busch said, referring to the Brickyard 400. Starting up front means a lot here in Indy. I think our Toyota today was strong. I think our Toyota tomorrow will be even stronger.
