Saints sign WR Camarillo, activate Ruud

METAIRIE, La. (AP) - The New Orleans Saints have activated linebacker Barrett Ruud and brought back veteran receiver Greg Camarillo, who had been with the club for part of the preseason.

Both players were participating in Wednesday's practice.

The Saints acquired Ruud in a trade for unspecified draft pick during the preseason, but used a roster exemptions on him last weekend, meaning he could not play.

The re-signing of Camarillo comes after receiver Devery Henderson left Sunday's loss to Washington after being hit hard in the back of the head. Camarillo, now in his seventh season, had five catches for 58 yards with the Saints during the preseason.
