Saints News, 11/1/13: Saints Release CB Chris Carr

New, comments

The corresponding roster addition hasn't yet been announced, but one can assume it might be Jonathan Vilma returning to the active roster. Coach Payton said yesterday that Saturday would be the first day Vilma would be eligible for activation. Could #51 be on the field to go against his old Jets team? In other news, several Saints are listed as 'questionable' for Sunday's game and none are listed as 'out.' Jahri Evans practiced for the first time this week, but Malcolm Jenkins again missed practice.
