NEW ORLEANS -- The Saints just announced linebacker Scott Fujita won’t return in this game because of a calf injury.
That’s all we know at this point. But you have to wonder what the Saints will do if Fujita is out for any extended period. Troy Evans is playing in Fujita’s place right now, and Marvin Mitchell, Jo-Lonn Dunbar and Jonathan Casillas are the other backup linebackers.
The Saints worked out Derrick Brooks back in the preseason, and despite the wishes of a lot of fans to the contrary, have not signed him. If Fujita is going to miss any serious time, Brooks might be an option.
