INDIANAPOLIS -- The New Orleans Saints swapped out two of their backup receivers for backup defensive backs on the eve of Sunday's game at the Indianapolis Colts.

They promoted defensive backs Akeem Davis and Sammy Seamster from their practice squad and released WRs Joseph Morgan and T.J. Graham.

The moves will likely only affect special teams. But the Saints could use the emergency depth in their secondary since cornerbacks Keenan Lewis and Damian Swann have both been ruled out for Sunday's game with injuries.

As I wrote Saturday, this is a tough matchup for the Saints to be spread thin at cornerback since the Colts have such a deep, dynamic group of wide receivers and like to take shots down the field with them.
