TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The pre-season kicks off tonight for the Arizona Cardinals against the New Orleans Saints. Quarterback Matt Leinart is expected to see limited playing time.

He'll likely play a few series before being pulled. Leinart says they're excited about putting the pads on against an opponent.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt has ruled out playing receivers Early Doucet and Anquan Boldin for tonight's game. Both players are nursing injured hamstrings.

After tonight's game, Arizona returns to training camp.
