Time for a quick trip through the morning headlines around the NFC South.
Atlanta rookie safety William Moore, whose development was slowed by injury, will be active Sunday for the first time this season, coach Mike Smith said.
The good news is Carolina defensive tackle Maake Kemoeatu is taking up more space than ever. He’s toting 365 pounds. The bad news is he’s still on crutches and out for the season. Kemoeatu said he’s about three weeks away from ditching the crutches. After that, he’ll begin working out and getting ready for next season.
There’s still nothing new on Tampa Bay guard Arron Sears, who remains apart from the Bucs while dealing with what the team calls a private matter.
The Saints rank second in the league in local television ratings through four games. They trail only Pittsburgh.
