Fenderson, Ojo Injured in Europe

Two of the Saints' seven allocations to NFL Europe missed the season opener due to injury. RB James Fenderson, an undrafted rookie in 2001 and WR Onome Ojo, the Saints' 5th round pick in 2001, are on the injured list of the Rhein Fire.

Fenderson has been missing time with a knee injury while Ojo had surgery on a groin injury that has bothered him since last season. Ojo first suffered the injury in practice with the Saints but aggravated it in practice with the Fire.

CB Tim Carter (Berlin): 6 tackles (4 solo, 1 assist, 1 special teams)
