Backup Saints safety Vinnie Sunseri, in the midst of a battle for a roster spot, was carted off the sideline during the second quarter of Sunday’s preseason game.

Sunseri went down on punt coverage, was helped to the side by trainers and later carted off to the locker room.

With three spots at safety occupied by Kenny Vaccaro, Rafael Bushand Jairus Byrd, New Orleans was planning to take a close look at the rest of the Saints’ safeties as they fight for a roster spot.
