NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The San Francisco 49ers practiced outside Thursday for the first time in the Big Easy, and the Baltimore Ravens were briefly right nearby.
A day after their Super Bowl preparations were moved indoors because of high winds, coach Jim Harbaugh's NFC champions shared the Saints facility with big brother John's Baltimore team after it moved from Tulane University.
Jim Harbaugh called the 100-minute session a ``photo copy'' of the outstanding practice Wednesday, which safety Donte Whitner considered the best all year.
San Francisco overlapped for 10 minutes with the Ravens, with drapes from local merchants used to separate the practices and ensure privacy. Jim Harbaugh credited the collaborative effort to ``cooperating spirits.''
Linebackers Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks were limited in practice for the second day with shoulder injuries.
