The Saints officially placed DE D.J. Pettway on the injured reserve after clearing waivers on Sunday.
New Orleans elected to waive Pettway with an injury designation on Saturday along with DB Alden Darby.
Pettway wound up signing on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Alabama back in May. During his four-year career at Alabama, Pettway recorded 48 tackles, 12.5 tackles for a loss, seven sacks and five pass defenses.
