The New Orleans Saints will be missing several key players when they take the field in Atlanta Sunday for the season opener against the rival Falcons.

Wide receiver Kenny Stills (pictured), who is penciled in as a starter opposite Marques Colston, has battled a quad injury throughout training camp and preseason. He practiced on a limited basis today and is officially listed as questionable.

Fullback Eric Lorig, who signed a 4 year $4.8 million deal with the Saints back in March, is OUT for Sunday's opener. He suffered a leg injury in the first week of training camp and has not returned to the practice field since.

Safety Marcus Ball, who signed a 3 year deal in April, has missed the last few weeks with a hamstring injury. He is also listed as OUT for Sunday.

The Atlanta Falcons list defensive tackle Corey Peters and safety Dez Southward as probable.

Kickoff Sunday at the Georgia Dome is set for noon. Catch all the action, including the Saints "Point After" postgame show, on ESPN1420.
