Saints starting cornerback Jabari Greer hurt his left leg in the
first quarter Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers and team
officials quickly ruled him out for the rest of the game.
San Francisco also had a cornerback go down late in the second
quarter when Tarell Brown had to be carted off with a rib contusion
after tackling Saints running back Pierre Thomas near the goal
line. He was listed as questionable to return.
Greer landed awkwardly after leaping to break up a third-down
pass intended for Jon Baldwin. As Greer came down, he twisted his
ankle and his knee appeared to buckle.
The veteran was taken to the locker room on a cart, waving as
the crowd applauded.
