Saints bring back WR Joe Morgan

The Saints brought back wide receiver Joe Morgan Tuesday, a week after releasing him.

Morgan was added to the roster in time for practice Tuesday. The Saints host the Falcons Thursday, and Morgan’s return is probably directly tied to the shoulder injury suffered last weekend by Marques Colston.

Morgan was released last week when the team added punter Brandon Fields. Morgan, who’s been with the Saints on and off since 2011, was released at the end of the preseason but then signed again. He has caught three career touchdown passes, all in 2012.

The team released defensive back Don Jones to create a roster spot for Morgan.
