WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. — The New Orleans Saints have cut undrafted long snapper Chris Highland, according to a league source.

Highland, a rookie from Illinois State who was signed at the beginning of camp to fill in for Justin Drescher while the veteran rehabbed an injury, spent two weeks in the Saints camp and handled all the long snaps in the preseason opener against Baltimore.

With Drescher back off of the non-football injury list, the Saints waived Highland and replaced him with a linebacker who was at the team’s afternoon walk-through, although the signing hasn’t been reported yet.
