-- CB Damian Swann (27) covers WR Wille Snead (83) as they work in drills on the second day of Saints training camp in White Sulphur Springs, WVA.

Damian Swann's second season has potentially come to an end.

The Saints have placed the second-year cornerback on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury, according to a source.

The Saints are using the open roster spot to sign pass rusher Paul Kruger, according to sources.

Swann, who was sidelined for a period of time during camp, flew to Philadelphia to meet with Dr. William Meyers, a specialist in the core muscles, on Monday for an examination.

A 2015 fifth-round pick, Swann served as the team's primary nickel cornerback last season until suffering a series of concussions that ended his season.

New Orleans appears set to move forward at cornerback with Delvin Breaux, P.J. Williams, De'Vante Harris and Ken Crawley at the top of the depth chart.
