Saints RB McAllister placed on injured reserve

SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 12, 2005) -- The New Orleans Saints placed running back Deuce McAllister on injured reserve with a right knee injury, ending his season.

The 26-year-old, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in the team's 52-3 loss to Green Bay, received a second opinion from physicians in San Antonio and a third opinion from orthopedic surgeon James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala.

McAllister, in his fifth season, had rushed for 335 yards on 93 carries before the injury. He had three straight 1,000-yard rushing seasons and earlier this year became the Saints' career rushing leader with 4,529 yards.
