Saints CB Keenan Lewis was placed on injured reserve Thursday with the Saints signing Chris Owens. Lewis' season was plagued by a preseason sports hernia and then a Week 10 knee injury. It was originally thought that he might be back in December, but apparently not with just six weeks left in the season.

Saints QB Matt Flynn, who won a national championship under Les Miles at LSU, said he thinks it would be a mistake to fire him. Just be careful what youre asking for. Flynn said he understands the frustration of unmet expectations but said Miles is a reason for those high expectations. And he said talk that Miles won with Nick Sabans players is quite a bit of ignorance. ... Its been 11 years since (Saban) has been there, and people are still talking about him. So I mean, get over it.

Saints S Kenny Vaccaro on Rob Ryan being fired: "It was tough for me, especially since I feel like we came in together, we were part of a good thing that first year (in 2013). I love him, man. I loved him as a coach, I love him as a friend. I felt kind of sick when he left. I feel like it was our fault. But when you're ranked 32, I think everybody has their hand in that pot. I feel like we let him down as players."

Drew Brees said Texans do a good job of moving J.J. Watt around, so "It's not like we can just run away from him, since we don't know where he's gonna be." Said it's important to get rid of the ball since Watt is relentless. And said Watt's job is basically to "wreak havoc."
