Metairie, La. • The Saints have lost receiver Joseph Morgan and defensive end Kenyon Coleman for the season because of injuries, depriving New Orleans of one of its top deep threats and a reliable veteran run-stopping lineman.

Morgan hurt his left knee in Saturday's scrimmage, and coach Sean Payton says his diagnosis has come back as a torn meniscus and partial tear of his anterior cruciate ligament.

Coleman left practice Tuesday and Payton says he tore a pectoral muscle, which also requires season-ending surgery.

Coleman was entering his 12th season after spending the past two with new Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan in Dallas.

Morgan is entering his third year as a pro and was expected to be a regular behind veterans Lance Moore and Marques Colston.
