(WVUE) - Tonight (Fri., Aug. 19) the Saints step onto Lambeau Field to face the Packers in Green Bay at 7 p.m. in week 2 of the NFL’s preseason.

The Saints are expected to be without starting quarterback Jameis Winston, who participated in practices this week for the first time since a foot injury weeks ago. Head coach Dennis Allen said that this week was a “perfect situation” to continue to assess younger players and their fits in various positions.
