Saints receiver Lance Moore and defensive tackles Sedrick Ellis and Kendrick Clancy were officially ruled out of Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Linebacker Scott Fujita is listed as questionable with a calf strain, though his return seems unlikely this week since he still has not practiced. And kicker Garrett Hartley is listed as doubtful after tweaking his ankle during Friday's practice.
Three other Saints are listed as probable after practicing fully on Friday -- center Jonathan Goodwin (knee), cornerback Malcom Jenkins (ankle) and linebacker Marvin Mitchell (foot).
The Saints will likely have to add a defensive tackle to their roster on Saturday, though Coach Sean Payton didn't announce the team's plans. He said practice squad tackle DeMario Pressley is a possibility, or the team could consider internal options, such as moving a defensive end over to tackle if needed.
With Moore out, receiver/kickoff returner Courtney Roby is available as a fourth receiver, though he isn't expected to be heavily involved on offense
