The Saints made a few roster changes ahead of Sunday's match-up against Tampa Bay. Running back Jonathan Williams was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad. The team had just 2 running backss, Alvin Kamara and Mike Gillislee, on the active roster before the move.

Replacing Williams on the practice squad is quarterback J.T. Barrett, who was waived to bring back rookie Boston Scott. To make room on the roster, Jermon Bushrod was released. The offensive lineman did not practice the last couple of days due to non-injury reasons.
