NEW ORLEANS ― Saints safety Chris Reis will have season-ending surgery on the right shoulder he injured in the second half of New Orleans’ 16-14 win over Carolina on Sunday, an NFL source said Monday night.
Reis entered the game after Pierson Prioleau bruised his chest and a lung early in the second quarter.
The fourth-year player out of Georgia Tech had four tackles this season, all coming against Carolina. He was inactive for the first two games.
Reis has been a stalwart for the Saints on special teams throughout his career and recovered the onside kick to open the second half in the Super Bowl.
