Saints Make Roster Move

The New Orleans Saints made a roster move Friday, placing rookie defensive end Rob Ninkovich on the reserve-injured list and adding second-year defensive end Eric Moore to the active roster from the team's practice squad.

Ninkovich, a 6-2, 252 pound product of Purdue, was selected by the Saints in the fifth round of the 2006 NFL Draft with the 135th selection overall. He injured his knee in the Saints' 23-3 victory over the Atlanta Falcons while participating on a special teams coverage unit.

Moore, 6-4, 268 pounds, broke into the NFL in 2005 as a sixth round selection of the New York Giants. The Giants, perhaps boasting the deepest collection of defensive ends in the league with the likes of Michael Strahan, Osi Umenyiora, Mathias Kiwanuka, and Jason Tuck, elected to waive Moore at the end of training camp. He quickly was signed to the Saints' practice squad and practiced with the team through the first three weeks of the season before his promotion.

The native of Pahokee, Florida was a standout performer for the Florida State Seminoles, playing in 41 games and collecting 82 tackles with 14 sacks, 30.5 tackles for losses, 34 quarterback pressures, four fumble recoveries, four forced fumbles and eight passes defensed.
