With starting quarterback Jameis Winston (foot) ruled out, Andy Dalton again. He was scripted to go 10 plays in the opener against Houston, and went 10 while leading a touchdown drive on his one and only possession. The guess here is that Dalton’s workload will expand a bit; maybe he goes 20 plays. The caveat, of course, is that if he leads a pair of five-play touchdown drives, well, that’ll be enough. Trevor Penning likely opens at left tackle, since James Hurst left Wednesday’s practice with a foot injury, and Lewis Kidd may open at right tackle because Ryan Ramczyk practiced in team drills Tuesday, and that might be as much quality work as he needed for the week. The Saints are a tad thin on the offensive line at present, so recent addition Derrick Kelly II actually might play Friday night. I still don’t think Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram II will be involved at running back, and Michael Thomas probably won’t line up at receiver. But rookie Chris Olave will. On defense, if defensive end Cameron Jordan, linebacker Demario Davis, safety Tyrann Mathieu and cornerback Marshon Lattimore got enough good work in the joint practices, they may get the bubble wrap treatment, too. Kaden Elliss and Chase Hansen and Andrew Dowell will get snaps at linebacker, but recent addition Jon Bostic could get into the mix early. He’s a veteran and his learning curve should be compressed because of it. Wil Lutz will handle all the kicking duties. Don’t expect to see anything too sexy on offense or defense, because that’s not what preseason games are all about. Fundamentals, keys, technique, etc.
