Saints’ QB Drew Brees said he plans to return to practice this week and hopes to be able to play as early as Sunday's Week 8 home game against the Arizona Cardinals. If he’s not back Sunday, the Saints have a bye before a home game vs. Atlanta.https://t.co/mLSzGrXd0m— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 21, 2019
Obviously if you’re a Saints fan or a Drew Brees owner, you love to hear this. That being said, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Saints, given that they’ve been winning with Teddy Bridgewater and have a Week 9 bye, wait until Week 10 to bring Brees back. It’s certainly encouraging though to see Brees back at practice this week.
