Another one bites the dust.

Defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis is the latest to join the Saints’ walking wounded, injuring himself in practice yesterday.

He is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.

He joins Marquis Colston, Jeremy Shockey and countless others to see time on the injured list for the Saints this year.

What this means in the immediate future is that the Saints will be short-handed against one of the best rush offenses in the NFL.

Not good.

More on this tomorrow.
