The New Orleans Saints will take on the Oakland Raiders in week 3 of the preseason this Sunday. Typically starters play into the second half of the third preseason game, and Sunday's game should be no exception. However, several starters will miss the game with injuries, as well as a handful of backups.

Starting defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis missed Friday's practice with a right shoulder injury, while starting strong safety Roman Harper fractured his left ring finger on Thursday. Both players will sit out Sunday, though head coach Sean Payton said that if it were the regular season, both would play.

Backup defensive end Junior Gallette is questionable, as is wide receiver Jarred Fayson.

The following 11 players have missed one or more practices this week, and will not play tomorrow: wide receivers Lance Moore, and Joseph Morgan, guards Carl Nicks and Roger Allen, tailbacks Chris Ivory and Chris Taylor, defensive tackles Aubrayo Franklin and Tom Johnson, linebackers Clint Ingram and Ezra Butler, defensive ends Jeff Charleston and Greg Romeus, and cornerbacks Fabian Washington and Johnny Patrick.

Kickoff tomorrow is set for 7:00, with the game being broadcast nationally on NBC.
