ATLANTA -- Couple of interesting pregame notes here at the Georgia Dome.

Wide receiver Robert Meachem and cornerback Jason David highlight New Orleans' inactive list. Meachem, a first-round pick last year, hasn't been able to work his way into significant playing time. Now that the rest of the receiving corps is healthy, he won't even get a uniform. David also was inactive for the Saints' last game. His pass-coverage skills have drawn criticism since he joined the team last year. Also, Matt Lehr will start at center in place of the injured Jonathan Goodwin.

Atlanta's Adam Jennings is the most interesting name on the Falcons' list of inactives. Jennings had been the return man, but was replaced last week. Rookie Harry Douglas is expected to handle punt returns and Jerious Norwood will be the main kickoff returner. Todd Weiner will start at left tackle in place of the injured Sam Baker.
