Jackson, the team's fifth-round pick (161st overall), had been missing from training camp the past several days. He was someone who had a couple of good plays during the first few days of camp, and it's unclear as to what put him on injured reserve. He was a player who could have made a large impact on special teams.

The team is also down Zack Baun at the linebacker spot. The Saints signed Chase Hansen after Kiko Alonso came back for a one-day stint and decided to retire. Expect New Orleans to have some more workouts here and potentially bring on another to the room.
