Saints quarterback Drew Brees has missed more than a week of practice with a strained oblique. He also missed the team’s preseason opener.
Now that the team has returned to its West Virginia training camp, there’s still no timetable for Brees’ return.
“We will go day-to-day,” coach Sean Payton told reporters. “He is making progress and yet I just want to make sure that it is something that we don’t hurry back.”
Brees has four weeks until the regular-season opener, and he knows the offense as well as the coaching staff. It makes much more sense to ensure that he’s 100 percent for the 17-week grind that is looming.
