The New Orleans Saints are getting another Buckeye on their roster.
After missing the last 10 games with knee soreness, former Ohio State wide receiver Ted Ginn has been activated by the Saints and is eligible to face off against the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday.

Ginn was coming off a career season — his first in New Orleans — entering 2018 after he hauled in 53 catches for 787 yards and four touchdowns. It looked like he was building on that foundation with nine catches, 123 receiving yards and a touchdown through the Saints' first two games this year, but that's when the inflammation in his knee flared up.
Against Atlanta and the New York Giants in weeks three and four, Ginn totaled just three receptions for 12 yards. The Saints placed him on injured reserve midway through October.
With the NFL's No. 2 scoring offense, New Orleans hasn't had much trouble putting points on the board. But the Saints are trying to secure the NFC's top playoff seed, and with tough games against Pittsburgh and Carolina to close the season out, Ginn's return will certainly help.
