Saints to Sit the Ailing vs. Arizona

Many of the Saints regulars will sit out or not travel at all the the Saints preseason opener against the Cardinals, including wide receivers Marques Colston and Devery Henderson, linebacker Jonathan Vilma, safety Josh Bullocks, defensive tackle Brian Young, running back Deuce McAllister, tight end Jeremy Shockey, cornerbacks Mike McKenzie and Tracy Porter.

Most of these are just precautionary and if it were the regular season, they'd suit up.

This will give young players like Robert Meachem, Adrian Arrington, Skyler Green, Usama Young, Pierre Thomas and Sedrick Ellis more attention and playing time. This will also help a veterans like Kevin Kaesviharn, who is battle Josh Bullocks for a starting spot at safety.

Just one more day and the Saints will be playing football on national TV!
