FILED UNDER: Saints place Patrick Robinson on injured reserve For New Orleans, that meant a second-straight strong performance by the defense under new coordinator Rob Ryan. New Orleans yielded only one defensive touchdown, and that came on a short field after Brees' first interception. The unit produced two turnovers, one on Malcolm Jenkins ' interception and one on defensive end Cameron Jordan 's strip of Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman and Junior Galette 's recovery. Also crucial was the final third-down stop that forced a failed field goal try with just more than a minute left, setting up New Orleans' game-winning drive. ''We played with real good effort and energy, came up with some big plays, turnovers and did enough for us to win the game, especially when it comes down to that final series,'' Payton said. Although the Saints have played only two games, the No. 10 ranking of its defense (heading into Monday night's game between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh), is an encouraging sign for a unit that finished last in the league in 2012. Payton: Saints fortunate to be 2-0 despite errors "We knocked the rust off some of the old songs," said Bay County Chief District Judge Timothy Kelly, also a member of Under Advisement.

Saints morning report: Awesome ain’t easy Meanwhile, Payton confirmed Wednesday that New Orleans re-signed veteran cornerback Chris Carr, who spent training camp with the Saints but was released Aug. 31. Carr has been in the NFL since 2005 and played his first three years in the league under current Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan in Oakland. Carr replaces Robinson on the roster and joins Keenan Lewis, Jabari Greer, Corey White and Rod Sweeting at cornerback. Its unfortunate that (Robinson) had to go down like that and be out for the season; but if I was going to play anywhere this year again, it was going to be here, Carr told reporters after his first practice back Wednesday. Saints CB Patrick Robinson placed on season-ending injured reserve Coach Sean Payton announced Wednesday that the team has placed cornerback Patrick Robinson on injured reserve, ending his season after just two games. Robinsons knee buckled and gave out during the win over the Bucs while he was lightly engaged with Bucs wide receiver Mike Williams and he was immediately placed in an air cast before being carted off the field. Robinson was the 32nd overal pick of the 2010 draft and started all 16 games for the Saints last season. Hed moved into a reserve role behind Keenan Lewis and Jabari Greer this season, however. Payton also announced that the team has brought back cornerback Chris Carr, who was one of the final cuts in August. Carr played for the Chargers last season and has also spent time with the Ravens, Titans and Raiders over the course of his career.

Robinson, a 2010 first-round draft choice, injured his patella tendon during the third quarter of New Orleans' 16-14 victory at Tampa Bay last Sunday. Payton says the Saints have replaced Robinson on the roster with veteran cornerback Chris Carr, who'd been with New Orleans during training camp and was among the club's final cuts. Robinson was a starter last season, but this season was moved to a backup role, in part because of the arrival of free agent Keenan Lewis. Robinson also was rehabilitating from an earlier injury when the preseason began, which prevented him from practicing during the first week of training camp. 5 things to know from Saints-Buccaneers And just as remarkable are people like his wife, Michel, former teammate Scott Fujita and friends Blair Casey and Rick Crozier, among others who have joined in that mission.
