The Saints weren’t lying when they said cornerback Jabari Greer had a “significant” injury.
The Saints announced that Greer was placed on season-ending injured reserve today, and was replaced on the roster by defensive back Trevin Wade.
Wade was drafted in the seventh round of the 2012 draft by the Cardinals, and played 13 games with the Browns last year.
Greer went down during Sunday’s win over the 49ers and was carted off, and it was clear he wasn’t well from the initial reaction.
Losing a starting corner is a tough blow for a defense that was playing well beyond expectations. Corey White is expected to slide into the starting lineup, pushing the depth of a group that wasn’t deep to begin with.
