New Orleans Saints

The Saints have lost receiver Joseph Morgan and defensive end Kenyon Coleman for the season because of injuries, depriving New Orleans of one of its top deep threats and a reliable veteran run-stopping lineman.

Coleman left practice Tuesday and Payton says he tore a pectoral muscle, which also requires season-ending surgery. Coleman was entering his 12th season after spending the past two with new Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan in Dallas.

Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says New Orleans and unrestricted free agents, Coleman and quarterback Luke McCown, have agreed to terms on one-year contracts.

The 6-foot-5, 293-pound Coleman has spent the last two seasons as a starting defensive end in Dallas' 3-4 alignment. He will rejoin new Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who held the same position with the Cowboys during Coleman's time in Dallas.
