Loewen (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.
Loewen had recently been sidelined with a minor, undisclosed injury. The 24-year-old is competing for a spot providing depth at defensive end on the final roster, so his participation at practice will be imperative.
Loewen spent the 2016 season on the non-football injury list due to a foot injury, Evan Woodbury of NOLA.com reports.
Loewen signed with Saints in May as an undrafted free agent, but was spotted wearing a walking boot on his foot later that month. Ultimately, he was waived and placed on the non-football injury list. Loewen will look to secure a 53-man roster spot during the 2017 preaseason.
