Grant a wish for the post season

by Walter Pierce

The Times-Picayune, ESPN and other sources are reporting today that the New Orleans Saints have placed starting defensive end Charles Grant on injured reserve, eliminating his services for the post season. The Saints say Grant had surgery to repair a torn triceps.

Grant had 44 tackles and 5 1/2 sacks this season. He was the Saint’s first-round draft pick in 2002 out of Georgia and has started 106 games with the team.
