It looks like running back Joique Bell, who has been one of the stars of the preseason for the New Orleans Saints, will make the 53-man roster.

That’s not definite yet, but Bell’s chances increased considerably Friday night as the Saints made some roster moves at running back. They placed Chris Ivory and Patrick Cobbs on injured reserve.

That leaves Bell with a chance to be a backup and special-teams player in a backfield that also includes Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles.

Wide receiver Joe Morgan, another preseason star, was placed on injured reserve along with safety Paul Oliver. Defensive end Greg Romeus was placed on the non-football injured list.

The Saints terminated the contracts of tackle Jordan Black, safety Quincy Butler, tackle George Foster, tight end Tory Humphrey, cornerback Trumaine McBride, safety Pierson Prioleau, safety Chris Reis and fullback Chris Taylor.

The Saints also placed receiver Montez Billings, defensive tackle Dexter Larimore, tight end Tyler Lorenzen and linebacker Dwight Roberson on waivers.
