New Orleans, LA (PPN) – Football is back and Thursday Night Football is kicking off with seven games including the New Orleans Saints preseason opener at Cleveland Browns.
RB Adrian Peterson reportedly will not play, according to ESPN. Peterson’s last preseason game was in 2011 with the Minnesota Vikings.
“In a sense, I do [find myself more eager to play]. Maybe I’m itching a little more this offseason,” Peterson said.
Saints first-round draft pick CB Marshon Lattimore has been sidelined with a knee injury. It is unclear if Drew Brees will play.
Kickoff will start at 7:00 p.m. CST in FirstEnergy Stadium. The Saints are currently ranked 3rd in the NFC South.
