Found December 15, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
The New Orleans Saints placed right tackle Charles Brown and free safety Malcolm Jenkins on season-ending injured reserve. Guard Ricky Henry and safety Jerico Nelson were signed off the Saints' practice squad. Jenkins started all 13 games for the Saints this season, but left last Sunday's loss to the New York Giants with a knee injury that ultimately ended his season. He is likely to be replaced by Isa Abdul-Quddus. Brown started eight games this season - seven at right tackle and one as a blocking tight end. But he has missed the past three games with his own knee injury. Brown also had his 2012 season cut short by a knee injury. Henry has been on the Saints' practice squad all season after failing to make the Chicago Bears' opening-day roster. He was originally signed by the Bears as an undrafted rookie out of Nebraska in 2011. Nelson was signed by the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas after last April's draft.

Saints Nation: Saints Annihilate Bucs 41-0

This may have just been the biggest beatdown short of the 62-3 win over the Colts last season that I have ever seen the Saints put down on a team in my lifetime. While it does nothing to satisfy my postseason aspirations when the season began, and it also does nothing to help the Saints' draft position, I think it all served to make us feel better in realizing the Saints are...

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades vs. Bucs

  The Saints could have put together one scoring drive and it would have been enough to give them the win, that's how good their defense played.

That's usually a recipe for good grades all around as you'...

Bucs game day: Keys to the game at New Orleans

So for the Bucs to be successful, they need to do a lot of what they did in the second half of that game and nothing...
