Saints placed FS Jairus Byrd on injured reserve with a torn lateral meniscus, ending his season.
We're not sure how big of a loss it is for the New Orleans defense, to be perfectly frank. Byrd was a matador in run defense in the season's first month, contributed zero interceptions, and also was frequently being picked on in coverage. The Saints will turn to reliable Rafael Bush opposite Kenny Vaccaro. Byrd was signed to a six-year, $54 million blockbuster contract this past March. He's owed $8.1 million in 2015, $8 million of which is guaranteed. Oct 3 - 2:19 PM
