Vea (calf) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Vea has yet to return to practice after being sidelined for over a month with a strained calf. The No. 12 overall pick from this year's draft, Vea's availability for Sunday's season-opener against the Saints appears to be in legitimate jeopardy. If Vea is unavailable Sunday, veteran Beau Allen is expected to line up alongside Gerald McCoy.
