The Saints fear they’ve lost linebacker Parys Haralson for the season because of a torn pectoral and cornerback Keenan Lewis was knocked out of Saturday’s victory over the Eagles with a concussion, a pair of injuries that have led the team to add a defensive body before they travel to Seattle this weekend.
Safety Jordan Pugh tweeted that he signed with the Saints and the Baton Rouge Advocate confirmed the signing with Pugh’s agent. There’s been no official announcement or corresponding roster move, although Haralson will likely be placed on injured reserve if his injury is what the Saints expect.
Pugh played four games with the Redskins this season, but was released in late October. Pugh recorded one tackle and one interception of Peyton Manning before getting his walking papers.
He played 13 regular season games for Washington in 2012 and also saw action in their playoff loss to the Seahawks, which means this weekend’s game will be his second postseason date with Seattle in as many years.
