10/13/15DTJohn JenkinsElbowQUESTIONABLEThe 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.
10/13/15CBDamian SwannConcussionQUESTIONABLERookie cornerback Damian Swann has signed a four-year deal with the Saints, per the Baltimore Sun. It's worth $2.464 million.
10/11/15SJairus ByrdKNEEPROBABLESaints safety Jairus Byrd (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Byrd will likely hop right in as a starter alongside Kenny Vaccaro, but the Saints may monitor the three-time Pro Bowler's snaps. Although his track record from Buffalo is superb, Byrd has played just 15 games since the start of 2013 and four games since the beginning of 2014. He needs to re-prove that he's a useful IDP outside of very deep leagues.

10/11/15WRMarques ColstonSHOULDER Colston (shoulder) was present at practice Tuesday but did not participate, Evan Woodbery of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

After suffering a separated shoulder against Philadelphia on Sunday, Colston's chances of playing in Week 6 do not appear to be great, especially considering the Saints are on a short week, playing Thursday against the Falcons.

10/11/15CBKeenan LewisHIPPROBABLESaints cornerback Keenan Lewis (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Coming off a minor hip procedure at the beginning of September, Lewis is returning toward the front end of his timetable. He'll likely get the start, but it's not entirely clear whether he'll replace Brandon Browner or Delvin Breaux.

10/11/15DEBobby RichardsonHIPQUESTIONABLESaints DT Bobby Richardson made six tackles (two solo) in Sunday's win against the Cowboys.

Richardson, an undrafted rookie free agent out of Indiana, made his first career start in Week 4, after Akiem Hicks was traded mid-week to the Patriots.

While Richardson rotated playing time with another rookie, Tyler Davison, he was on the field for 38 of the Saints' 61 defensive snaps (62 percent), according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. He made two tackles for a loss.

If Richardson can continue to hold down the starting gig, he could make an impact in deeper individual defensive player leagues.
