Source: Saints rookie Marcus Murphy headed to injured reserve

Saints rookie punt/kick returner Marcus Murphy's season is now complete, a source confirmed to FOX 8 Sports. Murphy was informed he is going to injured reserve after suffering a high ankle sprain that will not be healed in time before the regular season ends.

Murphy has had an up and down rookie season. He averaged 9.3 yards per punt return and had one touchdown. It was the team's first since 2011. He also had three fumbles as well.

There is no official word on a corresponding roster move.
