Safety Malcolm Jenkins made the play they thought was going to save the Saints’ season.
There doesn’t seem to be any saving it now, and Jenkins himself isn’t going to be around to help.
The Saints placed Jenkins (hamstring) and tackle Charles Brown (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Both players had been ruled out this week already, and running short on numbers and games, the Saints made the switch.
They promoted guard Ricky Henry and safety Jerico Nelson from the practice squad to fill their roster spots.
