The New Orleans Saints have placed safety Malcolm Jenkins and offensive lineman Charles Brown on injured reserve, ending their seasons.

The team announced Saturday that it has signed safety Jerico Nelson and offensive lineman Ricky Henry from its practice squad to take their places on the active roster.

Jenkins has started all of the Saints' 13 games this season, recording 96 tackles and returning an interception for a touchdown. Brown has started at right tackle in seven games this season and at tight end in one game.

Henry was signed to the practice squad after the Chicago Bears waived him at the end of preseason. Nelson was an undrafted free agent who has spent the entire season on the practice squad.

The Saints host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
