The Saints announced a pair of roster moves on Saturday. The team elevated quarterback Ryan Griffin to the 53-man active roster and placed nose tackle John Jenkins on injured reserve with an abdominal injury. Jenkins registered 30 combined tackles and a sack in 12 games played.
Saints tackle Terron Armstead will miss Week 17 against the Buccaneers with a neck injury. It will be Armstead's second straight game out with the injury. Defensive tackle John Jenkins is listed as questionable with an abdomen injury and did not practice Friday. Safety Jamarca Sanford (hamstring) and tackle Zach Strief (neck) are both listed as probable for the game. The Saints are currently 4-point favorites against the Bucs.
The Saints declared these players inactive for Sunday night's game at Dallas: running back Mark Ingram (hand), safety Marcus Ball (hamstring), wideout Joe Morgan, defensive back Patrick Robinson (hamstring), fullback Erik Lorig (ankle), linebacker David Hawthorne (ankle, knee) and nose tackle John Jenkins.
Saints defensive tackle John Jenkins did not make the trip with the team to Dallas and will likely be a healthy scratch for Week 4, Pro Football Talk reports. Jenkins underwent pectoral surgery in the offseason but is relatively healthy. He's been limited to only one game this season. The Saints have not provided a reason for his absence.
As expected, running back Mark Ingram (hand) is on the inactive list issued by the Saints for their Week 3 game against Minnesota. Also out with injuries are safety Marcus Ball (hamstring), fullback Erik Lorig (ankle) and linebacker David Hawthorne (ankle). The healthy scratches are cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste, nose tackle John Jenkins and wide receiver Nick Toon.
