Saints place Cooks, Bush on IR, add 3 players
NEW ORLEANS - The New Orleans Saints have placed starting rookie receiver Brandin Cooks and starting free safety Rafael Bush on injured reserve, ending their seasons.
The club has also waived running back Edwin Baker and added three new players to its active roster: linebacker Moise Fokou, cornerback Terrence Frederick and safety Pierre Warren.
Frederick was brought up from New Orleans' practice squad. Warren, who spent training camp with the Saints was signed from Minnesota's practice squad. Fokou was a free agent who last played for Tennessee in 2013.
Cooks' agent said on Monday that the Saints' second-leading receiver had surgery on his right thumb on Monday and was expected to be out four to six weeks. Bush has a fractured fibula in his right leg. Both injuries occurred on Sunday.
