NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Rookie wide receiver Keith Kirkwood was added to the Saints active roster Saturday. To fit Kirkwood on the 53-man roster, the Black and Gold placed Dez Bryant on injured reserve with a torn achilles tendon.

The Saints had three healthy receivers on their roster before adding Kirkwood in: Michael Thomas, Tre’Quan Smith and Austin Carr. Ted Ginn, Jr. is currently on IR, but can return week 15 of the season.

Kirkwood comes from Temple University, and hauled in three catches for 31 yards in the preseason.
