Keith Kirkwood: Staying in New Orleans
The Saints re-signed Kirkwood to the practice squad Monday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Kirkwood has helped fill in for New Orleans' depleted receiving corps since first signing with the team's practice squad in late September. The 27-year-old caught both of his targets for 18 yards between Weeks 5 and 6, but he then battled a brief ankle injury and has spent time on and off the team's active roster over the past two weeks. Kirkwood was already elevated from the practice squad once this season, and he'll be eligible for two more such activations with the Saints moving forward.... See More ... See Less

Saints' Keith Kirkwood: Re-signs with New Orleans
The Saints signed Kirkwood on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Kirkwood was recently let go by the team Thursday, after he battled an ankle injury prior to the Saints' Week 7 matchup against Arizona. However, the 210-pounder's issue doesn't seem to be of great concern given the team's desire to bring Kirkwood back into the mix. With both fellow receivers Michael Thomas (foot) and Jarvis Landry (ankle) currently considered questionable to play Sunday versus the Raiders, the 27-year-old could find himself in a rotational role if either WR is eventually sidelined for the contest....
