Saints on the ropes in Miami at half

Courtney Roby had a great first half, setting up the Saints first three points by returning a kickoff 73 yards to the Dolphin 15 yard line. Then, he was the only man near WR Davone Bess after a 53-yard Thomas Morstead punt, beat his blocker and dropped him for a two yard loss. Missing that tackle would have resulted in a big return.

RT Jon Stinchcomb went down in the second quarter with a right knee injury. Zach Strief replaced Stinchcomb for a while, but Stinchcomb returned to start the Saints' drive with four minutes left in the second quarter.

DT Sedrick Ellis also went down in the second quarter and was helped off the field by two trainers and then driven on a cart into the locker room. He has an apparent right knee injury.

The Saints have been outrushed 23-120 by the Dolphins and have two turnovers at the half. Brees has been sacked three times.
