Pruitt was waived/injured Tuesday, but the team announced that he will be placed on IR after clearing waivers Wednesday. In his absence, De'Vante Harris and Cortland Finnegan could see an increase in playing time.
Pruitt tore his patellar tendon during Friday's preseason defeat to the Steelers, Kristian Garic of WWL Radio New Orleans reports.
What was initially believed to be an ACL tear has been reclassified after an MRI. While Pruitt's season remains in peril, the undrafted free agent is destined to land on one of the injured reserve lists in advance of Week 1.
