The Saints shuffled their roster ahead of Sunday’s showdown with the Giants at the Superdome.
Preseason star Rod Harper was placed on injured reserve with a foot injury and quarterback Chase Daniel was re-signed days after being waived to make room for reinstated kicker Garrett Hartley.
Harper, a wide receiver, made the team after opening eyes with a pair of punt returns for touchdowns during preseason. He was never active during the regular season, however, as the former ArenaFootball2 star couldn’t make his way past any of the other wideouts on the deep Saints depth chart.
Daniel, an undrafted rookie from Missouri, was signed to the Saints practice squad after failing to make the Redskins this summer. He spent two weeks on the active roster before getting waived and will likely resume his role as the emergency quarterback behind Drew Brees and Mark Brunell.
