The opening game of any season is always special what with the months of long anticipation for the road ahead and this game is no different. To face the Lions on day 1 is quite a break given their record from last season and the fact they will be starting with a rookie under center.
We do have a few players carrying injuries and they are as follows:
Jeremy Shockey Saints TE: Ankle injury, game status probable.
Usama Young Saints S: Shoulder injury, game status probable.
Jammal Brown Saints T: Hernia injury, game status out.
Darnell Dinkins Saints TE: Foot injury, game status out.
Pierre Thomas Saints RB: Knee injury, game status out.
