Saints Sign RB Brian Leonard, Place S Vinnie Sunseri On Injured Reserve
New Orleans Saints rookie Vinnie Sunseri (pictured) was becoming a major factor on special teams this season, but he won't be making any more on field impacts in 2014.
Saints head coach Sean Payton announced today that Sunseri suffered a fractured arm in Sunday's loss to the 49ers, officially ending his season. Sunseri was placed on injured reserve.
Backup running back Edwin Baker suffered a concussion in the loss as well, though his current status is in question.
7 year veteran running back Brian Leonard has officially signed with New Orleans, according to his agent's twitter account.
Leonard spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a season ago, but was a member of the Cincinnati Bengals roster from 2009-2012. The Saints host the Bengals this Sunday at noon.
Wide receiver Joe Morgan is back at practice for the Saints this week after serving a team sanctioned two-game suspension for unknown reasons.
