Saints running out of defensive tackles

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

NEW ORLEANS -- The Saints, who already were thin at defensive tackle, now are really thin.

Antwan Lake will not return to the game after suffering a groin injury in the first half. Hollis Thomas is out for at least several more weeks with a triceps injury. That leaves Brian Young as the only backup behind starters Kendrick Clancy and Sedrick Ellis. Bet the Saints are regretting cutting Orien Harris, who had a nice training camp and wound up landing with the Bengals.
