Saints sitting several starters

NEW ORLEANS -- The Saints just announced their inactives for today’s game and it looks like they’re being cautious with some injured players.

Receiver Marques Colston, who had knee surgery Tuesday, will sit out and he’ll have plenty of company. Tight end Jeremy Shockey (groin) and running back Pierre Thomas (ankle) also are sitting out.

The rest of the inactives for the Saints are safety Usama Young, linebacker Anthony Waters, defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove, tight end David Thomas and linebacker Kawika Mitchell.
