Drew Brees back in action for the Saints Sunday


The Saints returned home to practice Sunday, and they had their most important player back on the field.

Via Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, quarterback Drew Brees was back to full participation, his first work in team drills since a left oblique strain that has kept him out of the first two preseason games.

Whether he plays in the third preseason game next weekend against the Colts remains to be seen, but the fact he’s out there today after taking a few weeks to get well is a good sign for the regular season (assuming he doesn’t wake up too sore tomorrow morning).

The Saints also got several other players back on the field Sunday, notably guards Ben Grubbs and Jahri Evans, cornerback Keenan Lewis and wideout Marques Colston.

    Keenan Lewis is good news. All the other injuries were minor and we knew they would be back. Losing Lewis for any amount of time would be hard to overcome.

    What a shocking surprise. The saints haters were really hoping this was a season ending injury. Especially Atlanta.
    The only person Atlanta wants hurt more than Drew Brees is Matt Ryan.

    Don’t even worry about ATL and their fans…they are a total non-factor in this season once again

    Heard Brees injury happed in a bounty program mishap. Come on saints! Bountys are intended for other teams, not your own.

    It’s not Brees the falcan’ts need to be worried about, it’s Vaccaro, Jordan, Galette, Hicks and Bunkley they need to worry about.

    To broke back brees guy…hating became very Un sexy in the early 2000s. Find a new profession and get something more original than the bounty scandal..which was the nfls. Way of keeping the saints from having an opportunity of playing the superbowl at home. In others words its all gotten really old dude! Just trying to help you out.

    I’m more curious about what is screen name is supposed to mean.

    How about bbb, would you please explain what “brokebackbrees” is supposed to mean?

    Saints haters are about to need an explanation.

  9. bcajun says: Aug 17, 2014 9:55 PM

    Definately Vaccaro

    Wasn’t it the saints that traded an entire draft to select Ricky Williams? Wasn’t it the saints fans that wore paper bags over their faces for 2 decades only to emerge as so called fans in 2008? Wasn’t it a saints coach that had bounty karma and got his acl torn in a game vs Tampa? Was it not multiple Saints players and coaches that received multiple suspentions and loss of draft picks for having a bounty program? Facts are facts people. Its no mystery why the saints haven’t been relevant since they got caught cheating.

    Alex, gimme “spot the still bitter Vikings fan” for $1000….

  12. brokebackbrees says: Aug 17, 2014 10:50 PM

    To that winningitall2014, cheating in pro sports has been un sexy since sports existed. Cheaters will never prosper and almost always get caught. Look no further than Tonya Harding, lance Armstrong, New Orleans Saints, Ben Johnson, NBA refs rigging games etc etc. Fans will always be fans and stick up for the team they cheer for, or athlete they cheer for. But the 5 I listed above, all have 1 thing in common, they all cheated, and they all got caught.

    and nothing you say can even touch that, so might as well go back into your little hole and get ready for the long, dark, cold winter that is Minnesota Vikings football. Lawls.

    I’m wondering how long the brokebackbrees guy has had these loser-like symptoms. Maybe he should see a doctor about that.

    Anyone who says the Saints haven’t “done anything since bountygate” obviously didn’t watch the playoffs last year.

    Remember that time the Saints beat the Vikings in the NFC Championship game and then won the Super Bowl?

    That was awesome!

    To Brokebackbrees:

    Wasn’t it the Saints that beat the Vikings in the NFC Championship game enroute to winning the Superbowl & bringing the Lombardi Trophy to New Orleans

    Or was it the Vikings that choked on 5 turnovers in the NFC Championship game which gave them NO CHANCE of winning the Superbowl?

    I can still hear it like it was yesterday…..”This isn’t Detroit man – it’s the Superbowl!!!”

    Thanks for your comment, Brokebackbrees because it evokes that GREAT memory everythime.

    Good thing brees is back….or they would probably loose!! They are now has been. Hard to win when they can’t cheat. Oops did I say that?
