New Orleans (0-1) hosts New England (0-1) this Sunday at noon, and both teams will be without key starters.

Linebacker Dont'a Hightower, who injured himself in the Patriots week 1 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, is officially listed as OUT.

The Patriots defensive struggles magnified when Hightower left the game.

Joining him on the OUT list are Patriots WR Danny Amendola, WR Matthew Slater and DT Vincent Valentine.

For the Saints, starting right tackle Zach Strief and left tackle Terron Armstead, as expected, will be OUT for the Saints.
