Well, now we know why the Saints looked at a quintet of free-agent receivers on Tuesday.

Lance Moore, who is tied with Marques Colston with 19 receptions for the most among wide receivers, hasn’t practiced this week due to a hamstring injury, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.  As a result, he may miss Sunday night’s game against the Chargers.

“It’s a case where guys are going to have to step up and do it,” interim-interim coach Aaron Kromer said.  “We have to adjust what we’re doing and fill guys in when we can.  It’s hard to replace Lance Moore.”

Without Moore, the Saints have only four healthy receivers:  Colston, Devery Henderson, Courtney Roby, and Joseph Morgan.

Plaxico Burress is flabbergasted.
