The New Orleans Saints will be without two key players in Sunday's season opener against the Green Bay Packers. CB Ken Crawley and WR Tre'Quan are nursing hamstring injuries and have been placed on injured reserve. 

Left tackles Terron Armstead and James Hurst did not practice in Friday's session.   

One positive note for New Orleans was the return of cornerback Marshon Lattimore to full participation.

With Crawley out of the lineup for several weeks, cornerback Bradley Roby will have a significant role in the cornerback rotation.

Head coach Sean Payton told the media that "they have known the player [Roby] for a while." New Orleans' scouts have been monitoring him for a few seasons. The NFL suspended Roby for Week 1 of 2021. Expect him to play when New Orleans visits Carolina on Sunday, Sept. 19.
