The Saints today placed receiver Keith Kirkwood on injured reserve, according to the NFL transactions wire.

Kirkwood injured his hamstring during pregame warmups on Sunday prior to the Saints' matchup with the Los Angeles Rams.

Kirkwood was just beginning his second NFL season. Last year he tallied 13 catches for 209 yards and two touchdowns.

Meanwhile, the team added defensive lineman Carl Granderson to the active roster. Granderson was listed as "did not report" throughout training camp. The rookie pass rusher was serving a jail sentence at the time in Wyoming.

Granderson logged 37 quarterback pressures last season while playing college ball with the Wyoming Cowboys.
