LANDOVER, Md. -- The New Orleans Saints are shaking things up with their kickers.

Veteran John Carney will be inactive for Sunday’s game against the Redskins. That means Garrett Hartley will take over field goals and extra points. The Saints had been carrying two kickers with Hartley inactive on game days.

But Carney has been somewhat inconsistent and the Saints apparently want to take a look at Hartley, who had to serve a four-game suspension at the start of the year.

Also inactive for the Saints are receiver Lance Moore, cornerback Tracy Porter, cornerback Jabari Greer, linebacker Marvin Mitchell, linebacker Scott Fujita and offensive lineman Jamar Nesbit.
