The Saints have waived defensive end Glenn Foster with a failed physical designation and signed fookie cornerback Travis Manning, the New Orleans Times-Picayune has reported. Foster (knee) had been placed on the PUP list last week. Manning was released by Green Bay in mid-June.
The Saints placed three players on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. Safety Jairus Byrd, wide receiver Marques Colston and defensive tackle Glenn Foster were all placed on PUP. Cornerback Brian Dixon was placed on the non-football injury list. Byrd is returning from a season ending knee injury. Colston has a non-disclosed injury. All four are still on the roster and can be activated at any time before the start of the season.
The Saints placed defensive end Glenn Foster on injured reserve after he hurt his knee in Sunday's loss to the Lions. Foster, 24, appeared in five games this season.
Saints defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley (concussion) and defensive end Glenn Foster (knee) were forced out of the game at Detroit in the second half. Both have been ruled out for the rest of the game.
Healthy scratches dominate the inactive list released Sunday by the Saints in Cleveland. The lone two injured players are safety Marcus Ball (hamstring) and fullback Erik Lorig (ankle). The other inactives are wideouts Nick Toon and Joseph Morgan, cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste, guard Senio Kelemente and defensive end Glenn Foster.
