METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

The New Orleans Saints placed linebacker Michael Mauti on the reserve/non-football injury list Tuesday, meaning he will miss the rest of the season.

The team placed him on the injury list for the Denver Broncos game.

"He's just got to have a procedure done, and it's going to be a decent amount of recovery time. It was just something we felt the timing was right, and I'm going to leave it at that," Saints coach Sean Payton said.

Former Green Bay Packers safety Chris Banjo will replace Mauti on special teams.

He had nine tackles, one sack and a forced fumble this season.
