Ivory puts a charge into the Saints

By Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS » Chris Ivory's college career was a bust.

The Saints gave him a chance anyway, and it is beginning to look like New Orleans may have plucked another exciting running back from the ranks of the undrafted.

Ivory turned a swing pass into a tackle-breaking, zigzagging, 76-yard score, and finished as both the game-high rusher and receiver in New Orleans' 36-21 preseason victory over the San Diego Chargers last night.

"I know I've got to come out and work hard, open some eyes and just prove that I want to be here," Ivory said. "I'm trying to go hard every play so I can keep (coaches') minds open and make this team."

The rookie rushed for 45 yards on 11 carries, with a long run of 16 yards. He turned his only catch into the longest reception in the game by bowling over defenders, making others miss and carrying one on his back across the goal line.

Ivory, who is a broad-shouldered 6 feet and 222 pounds, never rushed for more than 313 yards at Washington State, where he spent three years before being dismissed for violations such as being late to meetings and missing a practice. He finished his college career last year with an injury-plagued season at Division II Tiffin and wound up with a grand total of 757 yards rushing in four college seasons.

 

Eagles 20, Chiefs 17

Mike Kafka's 18-yard pass to Riley Cooper in the closing seconds boosted Philadelphia past host Kansas City, making Todd Haley 0-7 in preseason games as the Chiefs' head coach.

 

Redskins 16, Jets 11

Mark Sanchez connected with Dustin Keller for a 10-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter, capping a 15-play drive that gave New York a lead before Washington came back to win.

Larry Johnson, competing with Clinton Portis and Willie Parker for a spot in the backfield for the Redskins, caught a screen pass from Richard Bartel and rumbled 15 yards for the winning score with 2:13 left.

 

Falcons 16, Dolphins 6

Atlanta gave up only a field goal while Miami starting quarterback Chad Henne was in the game and beat the Dolphins.

Middle linebacker Curtis Lofton led the Falcons' defensive charge with 11 tackles.
