Saints Sign Punter Brandon Fields in Thomas Morstead's Injury Absence

Looks like Thomas Morstead will be sidelined with a quad injury for a little while...

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

With Thomas Morstead suffering from a quad injury in his kicking leg, the Saints have signed punter Brandon Fields. The news comes via his agent...

Fields was selected in the seventh round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Dolphins, where he's spent the past eight seasons before being released during training camp this summer. The former Michigan State punter was a 2013 Pro Bowl selection and a 2013 second-team All-Pro.

We do not know how long Morstead will be sidelined with his injury. Hopefully this is only for the short term.

Here are Fields' career stats...
