New Orleans Saints cornerback Arthur Maulet (37) participates in training camp at the Sports Performance Center in Metairie, La., Monday, Aug. 7, 2017.

The Saints promoted cornerbacks Arthur Maulet and Justin Hardee to the 53-man roster.

It was an expected move since New Orleans only had three healthy cornerbacks on the roster after cornerbacks Marshon Lattimore (concussion) and Sterling Moore (chest) were ruled out for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. 

Maulet and Hardee join Ken Crawley, De'Vante Harris and P.J. Williams at the position.

Veteran defensive linemen Darryl Tapp and Kendall Langford were released to make room. Both players signed earlier this week.

A New Orleans native, Maulet had an impressive training camp after hooking on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent and signed to the practice squad.

Hardee, a former wide receiver, spent camp with the Houston Texans before signing to the practice squad.

It would not be surprising to see some of the players released this week, including John Kuhn, eventually return to the roster.

The Saints have an interesting roster situation to manage this week. The team is flying to England for next week's game against the Miami Dolphins straight from Charlotte following Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers.

Whoever they need to get through the week needs to be on the plane over there. Another move will also need to be made next week with Willie Snead returning from his suspension.
