When teams step onto the field for their fourth and final preseason games this week, not many starters will play much time or really any at all. The New Orleans Saints will be facing off against the Tennessee Titans in the Superdome and Coach Sean Payton let it be known that a handful of starters will actually see a number of reps while others will sit.
Third-string quarterback Sean Canfield will start the game and most likely play the entire game with Drew Brees not expected to play at all and Chase Daniel a little banged up.
Due to time missed during the preseason while nursing injuries and other matters, these starters will see considerable playing time against the Titans:
- S Roman Harper
- CB Tracy Porter
- OG Carl Nicks
- DE Will Smith
It remains to be seen just how much they will play as the Saints don’t want to risk any possible injuries with only a week to go until the opening game of the regular season against the Green Bay Packers on September 8, 2011.
