The Saints also promoted tight end Garrett Griffin from the practice squad with starter Jared Cook out with a groin injury. Griffin will serve as the third tight end behind Josh Hill and Adam Trautman.
The team also re-signed offensive lineman Will Clapp to the active roster and placed linebacker Chase Hansen on the injured reserve in a corresponding move.
Clapp played six special teams snaps in Week One.
Hansen’s hip injury has kept him out since the season opener.
