Saints Place David Thomas on Injured Reserve

In a not so surprising move, the Saints have placed tight end David Thomas on injured reserve. Mike Triplett at the Times-Pic appears to have broken the news first. 

The New Orleans Saints placed tight end David Thomas on injured reserve Tuesday, ending his season. The team has not yet announced Thomas' injury, though it appeared that he suffered another concussion during their last game against the Atlanta Falcons. Earlier this year, a severe concussion sidelined Thomas for five games.   

This shouldn't hurt the Saints too much. Thomas has been a non-factor all season due to injury. In fact, he only has five receptions for 16 yards this year, though he's very effective as a blocker. It just sucks because I had hoped he'd get better before the end of the season and start to contribute the at the level we know he's capable. Oh well.

Tight end Michael Higgins was moved to the active roster.
