Not participating will be safety Louis Delmas, guard Leroy Harris, defensive end Israel Idonije, receiver Ryan Broyles and cornerbacks Ron Bartell, Chris Greenwood and Jonte Green.
Most of these players will go through warmups, but have been ruled out of game action for various reasons.
Head coach Jim Schwartz has said for weeks that the main goal is to get everyone ready for Week 1 vs. Minnesota. A lot of these players would have likely played had tonight been a regular season game.
Rookie second-round pick Darius Slay will start for Bartell at right cornerback and Don Carey will take Delmas’ place in the starting lineup at safety.
