The New Orleans Saints announced their list of inactive players for Week 1’s game with the Atlanta Falcons, and it’s got big news: both Michael Thomas and Tyrann Mathieu are dressing out, giving the team its best wide receiver and safety for the start of the regular season. Both players were questionable to play after being limited in practice this week; Thomas has been managing a hamstring injury, while Mathieu was tripped up by a sudden illness. But it’s behind them now, and the Saints will be better for it.

Here is the full list of inactive players from each team on Sunday:
