Per the NFL Transaction Report, the New Orleans Saints have claimed offensive lineman Bryce Harris off of waivers from the San Francisc 49ers and released defensive tackle John Hughes on Monday.

It makes sense, as the Saints saw left tackle Terron Armstead exit early against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to a chest injury. It was reported afterwards that he was going to get an MRI, but he was spotted in the locker room after the game and talked to reporters.

It’s unclear if Armstead will miss any time in Week 10, and will be something to keep an eye on as the week progresses. Andrus Peat will likely fill in at left tackle should Armstead be out of action.

Meanwhile, Harris makes another return to New Orleans and is becoming the new Khalif Barnes. Also listed on the transaction report was the releases of OT Martin Wallace and WR Corey Fuller from the reserve/injured list.
