But if we bring him up it's probably going to be for good. I doubt he'd clear waivers if we tried to place him back on the PS.
I still wonder if the Saints are keeping two kickers to prevent teams like the Colts and Panthers from getting a good replacement for their injured kickers.
Carolina kicker John Kasay is listed as questionable. The Panthers can turn to kickoff specialist Rhys Lloyd for field goals and extra points. But you might be shocked by the drop off in accuracy between these two.

Re: Elevating DT Pressley may be option for Saints

I don't believe anyone is headed for IR right now, so I am having a difficult time seeing how to make room for Pressley and/or Spicer. I know the obvious thing is to move out one of the kickers, but Carney has been pretty consistent, and we all know the value of a decent kicker. Hartley played well last year, and is the obvious future, would be very tough to release him and also just as tough to give him the job at this point. Not too sure if the Saints should roll the dice on releasing Daniel, I mean especially the way Brees has been hit the past few weeks. Hamilton would never clear waivers if released, and he could really play a major role down the stretch, especially the way Thomas and Bell have been somewhat banged up. Reis could be a guy that gets released and possibly Torrence. But once that is done it creates another problem with depth at S and CB.

Believe me, I would not want to be the decision maker right now. This is a very tough spot for the Saints to be in.

Heard on wwl today that Hartley tweaked his ankle at practice and will be inactive on Sunday.
