Kenny Phillips is coming back to town, according to a league source.
The veteran safety will rejoin the Saints after being released last week. Fox Sports reported the news first.
The move comes after safety Rafael Bush suffered a chest injury during Sunday’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
The only other free safety on the roster, Jairus Byrd, is working his way back from a knee injury.
Strong safety Jamarca Sanford played free safety against the Cardinals after Bush was injured.
