Saints Monday Madness

Saints team news and notes.

--The Saints waived running back Ki-Jana Carter and re-signed quarterback J.T. O'Sullivan, who was cut last week when the club signed safety Victor Green to shore up the injury-riddled secondary.
   --Saints kicker John Carney played in his 200th NFL game on Sunday.
   --SLB Sedrick Hodge is out for five-to-seven more weeks with a hairline fracture in his lower right leg.
   --LCB Dale Carter underwent surgery last week to have a small plate inserted into the fractured orbit bone around his right eye. He'll be out for two-to-three more weeks.
   --DT Johnathan Sullivan tore the meniscus in his left knee and will likely be out another week or two after undergoing arthroscopic surgery last week.
   --DE Darren Howard had surgery on his dislocated right wrist on Sept. 8 and will be sidelined for another eight-to-10 weeks.
   --LB Cie Grant, who missed the first two games after having arthroscopic knee surgery on Aug. 27, was inactive for the third straight week.
   Simply put, the Saints didn't block and they didn't run. Their leading rusher was Brooks with 15 yards on four carries, while Deuce McAllister ran 11 times for 8 yards, his lowest output since being anointed the starter before the 2002 season. Five of McAllister's 11 runs resulted in no yards or minus yardage. The Saints finished the game with 23 yards on 15 attempts for an average of 1.5 per attempt.
