METAIRIE, La. (AP) -- Saints running back Deuce McAllister is expected to be in uniform this week against the Washington Redskins, but whether he plays for the first time this season is unknown.
Coach Sean Payton says he spoke with McAllister last week to reassure him that he's in the plans for Sunday's game.
Mcallister, the Saints' all-time leading rusher, is coming back from a second knee reconstruction in three seasons.
Meanwhile, reserve running back Aaron Stecker is out a second week with a hamstring injury.
