METAIRIE, La. (AP) -The New Orleans Saints released reserve quarterback Joey Harrington on Wednesday, only five days after signing him.
The Saints signed tight end Sean Ryan to compensate for the loss of Jeremy Shockey to a sports hernia.
Harrington could be brought back to New Orleans later this season, but the Saints could not afford to use a roster spot on a third-string quarterback in the short term because they are currently short-handed at other positions.
In addition to losing Shockey for three to six weeks, guard Jamar Nesbit has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL's policy on anabolic steroids and related substances.
The Saints this week re-signed offensive lineman Matt Lehr to make up for the loss of Nesbit.
Panthers
Carolina re-signed linebacker Donte Curry to replace the injured Dan Connor.

Connor was placed on injured reserve and will undergo surgery soon.
Curry was on the inactive list for the first two games. He played in seven games for Carolina last season, primarily on special teams.
