The New Orleans Saints have made several moves on their practice squad roster over the past week and Wednesday annouced several more.

Offensive lineman Ryan Lee was placed on injured reserve after having surgery on his groin.  Lee is listed as a guard by the Saints but also as a center on Yahoo! Sports.  Lee played for Furman University in his college career and was signed to the practice squad on November 27th.

Two additions on Wednesday included a familiar face in wide receiver Jared Fayson.  He was an undrafted free agent out of Illinois signed last season but was waived/injured in August 2011.  He has been on the practice squad of the Indianapolis Colts and recently the New England Patriots.

The second player added was cornerback Ryan Steed who was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Furman University by the New York Jets in April.  He was waived on August 29th and has been a free agent since that time.
