Saints place Simmie Cobbs on IR, elevate Garrett Griffin –



The Saints placed rookie receiver Simmie Cobbs Jr. on injured reserve Saturday, Brett Martel of the Associated Press reports. The team promoted tight end Garrett Griffin in a corresponding move.

The Saints added Cobbs to the injury report Thursday with a knee injury. He didn’t practice Friday, and the Saints declared him out for Sunday’s divisional round game.

Cobbs, 23, was the only player on the team with a designation.

The Saints signed Cobbs off Washington’s practice squad Dec. 14. He has never played in a regular-season game.

Griffin played three games last season. He has spent this season on the Saints’ practice squad.
