Searching for answers, grasping at straws, the struggling New Orleans VooDoo have activated linebacker James Bryant from league suspension and placed linebacker Robert Henderson on league suspension, effectively releasing him. New Orleans also reassigned center Natiel Curry, taking him off the roster.
Despite not playing last Saturday against Chicago, Bryant should provide a boost. He is second on the VooDoo with 30 1/2 tackles, including four for losses and a pair of sacks. Henderson had 8 1/2 tackles on the season.
Coach Pat O' Hara worked newly acquired offensive lineman Bryce Tennison at fullback while fullback Jeramie Richardson may move to linebacker, his natural position. Tennison is 6'3, 305-pounds.
New Orleans (1-8) has lost eight straight games and will host the Cleveland Gladiators (2-7) Saturday night at 7 p.m. at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
