The Saints starting lineup took a few severe hits on the injury front to key players on both offense and defense.

The most serious injury appeared to be the one suffered by cornerback Johnny Patrick, who needed help off the field and was then carted into the locker room. So far his injury is unspecified but it was his right leg, or possibly right ankle. He will be getting an MRI tomorrow.

Scott Shanle walked into the locker room with an injured left leg just before the first half and never returned to the field.

Devery Henderson was also shaken up following a head injury, which had him down on the ground for a while and required trainers to help him off the field.
