Adam Caplan of the NFL Network is reporting that the Saints have placed running back Chris Ivory on injured reserve, ending his season before it even started. Via Twitter:

Saints placed RB Chris Ivory on IR. that should mean that Joique Bell makes the Saints roster.

That means no PUP list for Ivory, who hasn't practiced at all this preseason while recovering from off-season surgery and a more recent sports hernia surgery. 

Though Adam says this makes Joique Bell a shoe-in, this might really help another player on the bubble, like Junior Galette or Adrian Arrington. This means that the Saints won't be able to utilize Ivory's bruising style of running, though, especially on the goal line. Which is good news for Mark Ingram and/or Pierre Thomas, and their owners in fantasy football.

UPDATE [09/02/11 10:21 PM CDT ]: Ivory was not placed on injured reserve but rather the PUP list. Much better news. Via Mike Triplett:

I'm hearing this might be bad info on Chris Ivory. Think he's actually headed for PUP list. Stay tuned. #Saints.
