New Orleans – The New Orleans Saints announced today that wide receiver/kick returner Courtney Roby has been placed on the reserve/injured list and the team also announced that CB David Pittman has been waived. The announcements were made by Saints' Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis.

Roby, 6-0, 189 pounds, is a four-year NFL veteran that has served as the team's primary kickoff returner the past five weeks. The product of the University of Indiana had 19 kickoff returns for the Saints for 472 yards for a 24.8 average with a long return of 62 yards. The Saints signed Roby earlier this season as a free agent. He injured his ankle on Sunday afternoon against the Atlanta Falcons and becomes the 16th player on the team's reserve/injured list this season.

Pittman, 5-11, 185 pounds, is a third year pro from Northwestern State. He signed as a free agent with the Saints on November 12 and has been inactive for the past four games of the season.

The Saints' roster currently stands at the NFL's maximum allotment of 53 players on the active roster. The Saints return to the field on Thursday night, December 11, in a 7:15 p.m. contest against the Chicago Bears on the NFL Network and in the New Orleans market by WGNO (AB), Ch. 26.
