Saints lose CB Greer, 49ers DB Brown hurt

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.
