INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said the team remains hopeful it will be able to host the season opener against Tampa Bay on Sunday.
The Saints moved their practice site to Indianapolis over the weekend to get out of the path of Hurricane Gustav. Loomis said the team's practice facility sustained only minor damage, such as damaged awnings. But the Saints still plan to practice in Indianapolis this week.
The Louisiana Superdome, which was severely damaged three years ago during Hurricane Katrina, appeared to be in good condition, too.
Still, Loomis said he has not yet spoken with league officials about the possibility of moving the game, possibly switching the two home dates between the division rivals.
Loomis said players, coaches and staff members reported no injuries to their families in the storm.
He also said the Saints want to return to New Orleans quickly to help lift the city's spirits after a tough week.
