Times Picayune: The Saints placed kickoff returner Courtney Roby
on injured reserve, officially ending his season with the ankle
injury he suffered in Sunday's victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
They also waived CB David Pittman to trim their roster down to 53
players. Aside from Roby's injury, he Saints are fairly healthy
heading into their quick turnaround before Thursday night's game
at Chicago. Coach Sean Payton said he hopes left tackle Jammal
Brown will be able to bounce back from a sprained ankle and that
CB Randall Gay will be able to return after suffering a
concussion. Payton said the team will be cautious with Gay but
that the follow-up tests on his condition Monday were promising.
With Roby out, the Saints might use Pierre Thomas as a full-time
kickoff returner, even though he has become a centerpiece of their
offense. Payton said this time of year, it becomes more common for
teams to use their starters on special teams when necessary.
