The Saints need to change their gris-gris or something.

According to Katherine Terrell of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, an already injury plagued team got more bad news Wednesday, as wide receiver Joe Morgan and defensive end Kenyon Coleman will be lost for the season.

Coleman has a pectoral tear, and Morgan has a torn meniscus and a partially torn ACL, and will undergo surgery today.

Coleman’s loss is tough for a front seven that wasn’t deep to begin with, as he was brought in to help stabilize things during the transition to coordinator Rob Ryan’s 3-4.

Morgan was working with the starters while Marques Colston was on PUP, and was being counted on as a third receiver this year.
