The New Orleans Saints added injury to insult in their regular-season finale Sunday, losing three key players to injuries en route to a 23-13 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Superdome.

Tailback Chris Ivory (foot), tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle) and safety Malcolm Jenkins (knee) all left the game during the first half and didn't return. Coach Sean Payton declined to elaborate on any of the injuries afterward, though. The Saints aren't required to release an injury report until Wednesday.
