The New Orleans Saints lost defensive end Kenyon Coleman and wide receiver Joe Morgan for the season due to injuries, according to coach Sean Payton.

Coleman tore his pectoral and is expected to have surgery Thursday.  Akiem Hicks will start in his place.

Payton announced a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament and torn meniscus for Morgan with surgery set for today. Steve Breaston or Nick Toon will replace him as the third receiver.

"Obviously, they are losses and we've got to find some guys that can step up and take their spot,'' Payton told reporters.
