Saints placed CB Corey White on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

A fifth-round pick in last April's draft, White had been serving as the Saints' nickel back before first going down in Week 10. He had appeared in just one game since. White should be 100 percent well ahead of training camp, and will likely open 2013 as New Orleans' No. 3 or 4 corner.

Saints CB Corey White (knee) has been ruled out for Week 14.

White has battled the knee issue over the last month, missing two games before returning last week to play special teams. Johnny Patrick has handled White's nickel duties over the last three games, and will serve as the Saints slot cornerback in Sunday's game against the Giants.

Saints agreed to terms with fifth-round CB Corey White and seventh-round OT Marcel Jones on four-year contracts.

Coming from small-school Samford, the Saints plan to let White compete with Johnny Patrick for nickel duties in camp. It's a battle Patrick should easily win, leaving White to play primarily special teams as a rookie. Jones is a massive 6-foot-6, 320 pounds, but had a poor Combine following an injury-marred college career. He's likely ticketed for the practice squad.

Saints fifth-rounder Corey White is expected to battle Johnny Patrick for the third cornerback spot.

Patrick will be the heavy favorite. The Saints appreciate White's size, speed, confidence, and press ability, but he may have a learning curve coming from small school Samford. The Saints will hold off on moving White to safety for now.

Saints selected Samford S Corey White with the No. 162 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

White played cornerback for Samford, but an excellent tackler and run defender, he's expected to be switched to safety by the Saints. At 5-foot-11, 206 pounds, he has standard safety size. White will primarily play on special teams as a rookie, but gives the Saints insurance at safety in case Roman Harper is suspended for his role in the team's bounty scandal.
