The New Orleans Saints lost linebacker Parys Haralson to a chest injury and cornerback Keenan Lewis to a possible concussion during Saturday’s wild card game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Haralson was injured at the end of the first half after tackling Jason Avant and was replaced by Will Herring. Haralson’s injury was met with boos from Eagles fans, presumably because they believed he was faking the injury.

Lewis exited after he went down while breaking up a pass to Avant. He led with the crown of his helmet on the hit and had to be helped off the field.

Before exiting, Lewis had held DeSean Jackson to zero catches for the night on one target. Jackson then had two completions on the first two plays after Lewis’ injury.
