Saints down to two safeties
By Pat Yasinskas
NEW ORLEANS -- We already told you the Saints were running low on safeties. Now, they’re down to just two.
Chris Reis just left the game with what appeared to be an arm injury. Reis, normally a special-teams player, was inserted at strong safety after Pierson Prioleau went down with an unspecified injury in the first half. Prioleau was starting in place of Roman Harper, who is out with an injury.
Usama Young is now in at strong safety. Young and starting free safety Malcolm Jenkins are the only remaining healthy safeties on New Orleans’ roster. If there are any more injuries, the Saints may have to use a backup cornerback at safety.
