Safety Chris Reis Placed on IR, Season Over

Not very long after learning about Tracy Porter's sprained MCL, which will cause him to miss 2-4 weeks, we have now found out that safety Chris Reis is done for the year after needing season-ending shoulder surgery. 

Mike Triplett from the Times-Pic again has the source and the story yet again, so good work there... 

The exact injury was not specified, but it will require surgery    

This sucks because not only are the Saints really thin right now at safety already but Reis was also a huge contributor on special teams.

Here is a quick look at the current Saints safety's. Warning: It's ugly. 

Chris Reis (IR - Out for year)

Darren Sharper (Out for 2 weeks)

Roman Harper (Hamstring)

Pierson Prioleau (Chest)

Malcolm Jenkins

Usama Young

Sean Payton said he expects to bring in some guys for workouts tomorrow. 

**Props to HansDat for being the first to get this out to everyone.**
