METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints have placed linebacker Stephone Anthony on injured reserve, coach Sean Payton said Tuesday, ending a disappointing season for the 2015 first-round draft pick.Anthony, who started every game at middle linebacker as a rookie and led the Saints with 112 tackles, was demoted this year and barely played, even when healthy.He appeared in only 10 games with a total of 16 tackles; he was inactive last week with an unspecified knee injury that is not believed to be major.This sets up 2017 as a make-or-break year for the former Clemson standout, who was acquired with the 31st pick in last years draft as part of the trade that sent Jimmy Graham to the Seattle Seahawks.The Saints (6-8) could use as much young talent as they can get on a defense that has ranked among the NFLs worst over the past three years -- though it has finally started to climb out of the cellar over the past two months.Payton was candid last week when he talked about the read-and-recognition issues that have held Anthony back.Hes explosive, hes disruptive and yet his key-and-diagnose and his instincts at times are off, Payton said last week. Its run, and hes dropping back in a pass mode. Or its pass, and hes at the line of scrimmage. His ability to see and diagnose some very simple reads, for instance, are the keys for him getting better. ...Thats been the thing thats kept him back. And quite honestly, its kept him back on special teams [too]. Because a player like him who is on special teams, if hes covering a kick or covering a punt, generally a guy that can run and hit shows up. And hes been, I would say, just OK in that area.Anthony said last week that Paytons criticism is fair.I think every player goes through, I guess, a growth stage. Sometimes every linebacker can have a misread. But its just the little things I gotta get better at, Anthony said. So I think Coach Payton was right on.The Saints tried moving Anthony from middle linebacker to strongside linebacker this offseason so he could feature his athleticism without being in the position to relay in the play calls or make adjustments at the line of scrimmage.Anthony struggled at the unfamiliar Sam linebacker position, though, and played better in Week 14 against Tampa Bay when he was thrust back into the starting middle linebacker role as an injury replacement for Craig Robertson.Payton said the Saints are not yet sure what position Anthony will play in the future.I think its something that, obviously, the sooner, the better we can sort out, Payton said. I was encouraged with the [Week 14 performance]. Thats what he has to keep working on.The Saints used the vacant roster spot to sign receiver Corey Fuller off the Detroit Lions practice squad.
