Saints add McAlister with Porter out 4-6 weeks

New Orleans has signed cornerback Chris McAlister, a former Pro Bowler with Baltimore, with CB Tracy Porter out four to six weeks with an MCL injury, according to a league source.

The Saints expect defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis to return to practice Wednesday, with an outside chance he could play this weekend. However, it’s more likely he’ll return in Week 12.

Safety Darren Sharper is likely to play Sunday, according to a source, while cornerback Jabari Greer is expected to miss one more week due to injury.
