The New Orleans Saints are hopeful the hamstring injury suffered by CB Randall Gay in Sunday’s 38-7 win over the Bucs is not severe.
Gay left game during the first series, but the team is optimistic that he may be able to go next week, according to a league source. Another of the team’s cornerbacks, Leigh Torrence, also suffered a shoulder injury in the game.
New Orleans was already thin at cornerback, with starters Tracy Porter (out at least three more weeks with a knee injury) and Jabari Greer (expected back next week) missing the game.
The Saints added free agent CB Chris McAlister last week and expect him to be available next week as well after he was inactive Sunday.
