Saints quarterback Drew Brees told reporters Wednesday afternoon that "the plan is for him to play" Sunday in the Superdome against the Arizona Cardinals. Here is video of Brees at Wednesday's practice.
Brees has missed five consecutive games, all victories, after he suffered a right thumb injury September 15th in a loss to the Rams in Los Angeles. The injury required surgery.
Teddy Bridgewater has started all 5 games since Brees was injured, including a 36-25 victory over the Bears Sunday in Chicago.
Bridgewater has thrown 9 TD passes, and 2 interceptions. He has completed 67.7 percent of his passes.
