“He could tell you a lot better than I could about what happened and how he is and all that kind of stuff,” Ryan said.

Saunders spent most of practice riding the stationary bike on the sideline and working with trainers. He did not participate in any drills as the team eases him back to the field.

Ryan did not rule out Saunders returning to practice at some point this week, but added that it’s too early to determine whether he will be available for the season opener against Oakland on Sept. 7.

“We’ll see how he is each day, and I know our trainers and our doctors are going to monitor his situation,” Ryan said.

The speedy Saunders, the 104th pick overall, is expected to compete for a role as a backup receiver and punt returner. He returned two punts for 11 yards in the preseason opener against Indianapolis, but did not catch a pass.
