New Orleans Saints safety Jairus Byrd had surgery on Thursday, and as a result, was absent from practice. According to Nola.com, Saints coach Sean Payton told media that the procedure was optional and he expected him back by training camp.

“He’s having a surgical procedure on his back for a disk,” Payton said via Nola.com. “It’s been asymptomatic but it’s something we wanted to do, and he as well, to alleviate any issues coming in the fall. He’ll be back here in a week.”
