The New Orleans Saints took it on the chin, losing No. 3 WR Joe Morgan and pass rushing specialist Kenyon Coleman for the entire 2013 season. According to Katherine Terrell of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the injury ravaged team received more bad news Wednesday, as wide receiver Morgan and defensive end Kenyon Coleman will be lost for the season. Coleman suffered a pectoral tear, while Morgan has a torn meniscus and a partially torn ACL. Morgan was being counted on to replace Devry Henderson as the team’s No. 3 wideout and is a huge blow to the offense. In an even bigger blow, Coleman was brought to New Orleans by new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan to bolster a weak pass rush. It’s back to the drawing board for coach Sean Peyton, who will try to replace two players the team had big plans for.

Saints Nation: Preseason is Here! Five Things to Look for in Chiefs at Saints

The last time the Chiefs came into the Superdome is a game that will haunt me for a long time. Granted this is just preseason, but I'd be lying if I didn't admit I'd get at least a tiny fraction of satisfaction out of watching the Saints skull drag the Chiefs. Beyond that, it really is just another meaningless game that will mostly focus on the second half of the roster...

New Orleans Saints: 2013-2014 Season Preview

The New Orleans Saints started the 2012 season in the midst of the bounty gate scandal, and finished the year with a disappointing, 7-9 record.

As far as signings go, the Saints had a relatively quiet offseason...

Saints hoping DB Carr provides depth, experience

Chris Carr figured he'd get comfortable with the Saints' new defense soon enough. The ninth-year cornerback, who started for one of the NFL's top defenses in Baltimore three seasons ago, now aims to establish a regular role in New Orleans under new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who was also Carr's coordinator in Oakland at the beginning of his career. ''...

Saints Nation: Garrett Hartley Secures Kicker Job

Jose Maltos was a bit of a surprise release with the receiver position dropping like flies. Evidently the luxury of having a two kicker battle in preseason was not something the Saints felt they could afford after so many wide outs went down. Or maybe it was never really that much of a competition to begin with. Unless the Saints sign another kicker, Garrett Hartley won't have...

New Orleans Saints: Player Most Likely To Break Out In 2013

While he has been lackluster...

Payton read to get back on sideline

Finally, Saints coach Sean Payton gets to do what he loves the most. Nearly 19 months after he coached his last game, Payton will be back on the sideline when New Orleans plays the Kansas City Chiefs in an exhibition opener Friday night at the Superdome. It won't come close to matching the intensity of his last game, a pulsating, excruciating 36-32 loss at San Francisco in...

Saints Nation: Thoughts on Joe Morgan and Kenyon Coleman Being Lost of the Season
