Saints Place Rookie WR Brandin Cooks On Season-Ending I.R.

Field Yates of ESPN is reporting that the Saints have placed rookie WR Brandin Cooks on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday.

Cooks suffered a broken thumb during Sunday’s loss to the Cincinnati Bengals and was expected to miss somewhere between 4-6 weeks.

Based on that timeline, it seemed like this could be a possibility as the Saints could use that extra roster spot as they try to make the playoffs.

Cooks’ rookie season ends with him catching 53 passes for 550 yards receiving to go along with seven rushes for 73 and four total touchdowns over the course of 10 games.
