The New Orleans Saints have placed linebackers Will Smith and Chris Chamberlain and receiver Joseph Morgan on injured reserve, designated linebacker Victor Butler as physically unable to perform and cut three players.

The Saints have also added two players - trading with San Francisco for linebacker Parys Haralson and claiming cornerback Jumal Rolle off waivers - to put their roster at 75, the maximum allowed from Tuesday afternoon until the end of the preseason, when rosters are cut to 53.

Smith had a season-ending knee injury in Sunday. Morgan tore knee ligaments Aug. 3 and was expected to miss the season. Chamberlain was trying to come back from a knee injury that kept him out last season.

The Saints waived linebacker Eric Martin, receiver Tim Toone and safety Akwasi Owusu-Ansah.
