METAIRIE - It looks like Saints coach Sean Payton will open the regular season by throwing a dose of youth and inexperience at the visiting Atlanta Falcons.

As of Monday, 10 rookies - six of them undrafted - and three other players who have yet to appear in a regular-season game were on the Saints' 53-man roster.

Some of those may not be active on Sunday, but others are expected to play.

Rookie Kenny Stills and second-year pro Nick Toon both could make their debuts after standout exhibition outings. Undrafted rookie defensive end Glenn Foster also could see action after racking up four sacks and a forced fumble this preseason.

Sean Payton says his staff pays much less attention to players' experience than their performance once they arrive at Saints headquarters.
