After a couple weeks testing themselves against each other, the New Orleans Saints will finally get a chance to show what they can do against a different team in their preseason opener against the Houston Texans.

Most of the Saints will get that chance, anyway.

Hereís four of the top storylines heading into Saturday nightís game.

1. Who is active?
All we know for sure is that quarterback Jameis Winston wonít play, but donít be surprised if the Saints keep a bunch of their most important players in figurative bubble wrap on the sideline. Coach Dennis Allen has taken a proactive approach in limiting his key veteransí practice snaps throughout training camp, so itíd be a surprise to see the likes of Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara, Ryan Ramczyk and Marshon Lattimore play.



2. Running back snaps
There are only a couple positions that still feel unsettled on the Saints depth chart, and one of them is at running back. There are currently six running backs on the roster, and only two of them (Kamara and Mark Ingram) feel like safe bets to make the team. The Texans game figures to be an important first audition for the likes of Tony Jones, Abram Smith, Dwayne Washington and Devine Ozigbo.

For me the biggest storyline is who will be bottom of the roster. That is the most interesting battle that I can think of. LB'er, and Oline is where I'll be focused with the rewind button.
