Pair of Saints Starters Exit in First Half of MNF

The New Orleans Saints have had a game to forget through two quarters of their Monday Night Football matchup with the Baltimore Ravens, and they could be without two key starters in the second half. Cornerback Alontae Taylor and starting guard Eric McCoy both exited in the second quarter with injuries.

The two players were unable to return before halftime. The Saints went into the locker room down 14-3. The Saints were already particularly depleted in the secondary with cornerbacks Marshon Lattimore and Bradley Robey unavailable for tonight's game.

At 3-5 through eight games, the Saints can't afford many more losses before they fall out of contention in the NFC. A loss tonight will drop them to third place in the NFC South.

UPDATE: Alontae Talylor returned in the third quarter. Eric McCoy is currently questionable to return with a calf injury.
