Saints CB Greer out with hip injury

Saints starting cornerback Jabari Greer has left Sunday night’s

game against San Diego because of what team officials say is a hip

injury.

Greer was hurt late in the second quarter and the Saints said he

would not return, a blow for a New Orleans team already ranked last

in the NFL in defense.

Second-year pro Johnny Patrick took over for Greer, with rookie

Corey White entering on passing downs as the nickel back.
