Kevin Smith, Sammie Hill will start; Houston, Delmas out
NEW ORLEANS — Kevin Smith’s ankle is healed enough that he’s starting at running back tonight.
Not surprisingly Sammie Hill is getting the start at defensive tackle for Ndamukong Suh.
Chris Houston and Louis Delmas, who both have knee injuries and were doubtful for the game, are out.
Aaron Berry will start at cornerback with Chris Harris starting at safety.
Brandon McDonald (knee) is out along with Lawrence Jackson (thigh), Drew Stanton, Aaron Brown and Leonard Davis.
