Saints deactivate Shockey, Moore, Shanle

The Saints have deactivated tight end Jeremy Shockey and

starting linebacker Scott Shanle for Sunday’s game against the

Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Saints defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis is back in the lineup

after missing last weekend’s game against Dallas with a sore left


Shanle missed practice the past week because of a concussion

that occurred during New Orleans’ loss to the Cowboys. Shockey also

missed last week’s game with an injured toe.

New Orleans also scratches receiver Lance Moore, who has a sore

right ankle; Randall Gay, who also had a concussion last week but

since returned to practice; and Jabari Greer, who returned to

practice in the past week from sports hernia surgery.

Tampa Bay has not scratched any starters.
