The Saints have ruled S Vonn Bell (knee), S Marcus Williams (groin) and CB Eli Apple (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Rookie Chauncey Gardner-Johnson will get another start in Bell's place. Janoris Jenkins figures to start in Apple's place.
The Saints spent a 2nd-round pick on Utah S Marcus Williams. He's probably not headed for an immediate starting role but should fight for one as soon as 2018. Williams grabbed 5 INTs in each of his final 2 college seasons and looks like more of a big-play league option than he is for IDP formats that lean more heavily on tackles.
