I was really looking forward to seeing a few new "big name" players and or draft picks play during the pre-season opener. I usually watch Pre-season games every year but am not 100% on how they decide who's playing when, or if they alternate games between players.  I was really interested in seeing Paris Lennon play. He was Detriot's leading tackler (that's not saying much in Detroit but...) I was also interested in seeing Shawn Springs play. And the same with many of the draft picks as well. Rich Ohrnberger, Bussey, and McKenzie (unless he's out for the season, which they hinted towards weeks ago. no true status update) Can anyone comment on any of this?

P.S. Wes Welker isn't hurt is he?
