The good news for defensive ends Rob Ninkovich and Tearrius George, whom the Saints signed earlier this week, is they'll get paychecks for Sunday. The bad news is that they won't play against the Atlanta Falcons.

Ninkovich and George have been given roster exemptions until Monday, but won't dress Sunday because running back Deuce McAllister and defensive end Will Smith are back with the Saints -- for the moment, at least.

McAllister and Smith (along with defensive end Charles Grant, who is on the injured reserve list) had been suspended, but a federal judge put the suspensions on hold Friday.
