BALTIMORE — There will be no snaps for New Orleans’ biggest star in this preseason game.

Backup quarterback Luke McCown is out to start the game, with Brees is on the sideline. Brees is healthy — he warmed up — but he’s a healthy scratch.

Veteran wide receiver Marques Colston warmed up, but he’s now out of pads and will sit out the preseason opener, as well as defensive end Akiem Hicks, who sat the first drive.

Undrafted free agent Bobby Richardson started the game in place of Hicks.
