Per the NFL Transaction Report, the New Orleans Saints have waived cornerback Jimmy Pruitt and defensive lineman D.J. Pettway with injury designation. Pruitt, who was an undrafted rookie free agent from San Jose State, was released with a failed physical. Pettway, a pickup from Alabama last season, was designated with a non-football injury.
