Saints Thin At O-Line With OT Bryce Harris Being Placed On IR
Acting head coach Joe Vitt said Tuesday the team has elevated tight end Michael Higgins from the practice squad to the 53-man roster to replace tackle Bryce Harris, now on injured reserve with a broken bone in his lower right leg.
Starting right tackle Zach Strief (groin) was limited in Tuesday's workout, and it remains unclear whether he can step back into the lineup with tackle Charles Brown (knee) still unavailable.
William Robinson, the Saints' fourth tackle who replaced Harris in the opening quarter during the loss to San Francisco this past Sunday, may have to start Thursday at Atlanta.
Cornerback Corey White (knee) and tight end David Thomas (knee) were also limited in Tuesday's practice while defensive end Junior Galette (ankle), defensive tackle Tom Johnson (back), safety Isa Abdul-Quddus (concussion) and wide receiver Courtney Roby (shoulder, ankle) did not participate.
