Saints continue to be cautious with Drew Brees

USA Today - [Full Article]

Injured New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees missed his fifth day of practice on Sunday as the team returned to the field.

Brees, who was merely a spectator during the Saints' win over the St. Louis Rams on Friday night, injured his left oblique on Aug. 2 and had been held out since.

The Saints are being cautious with Brees' injury. Head coach Sean Payton has maintained they'll continue to monitor his progress and take it "day-to-day."

Fantasy Impact: 

Brees continues to rehab on the side. He did some light running and agility drills before throwing with injured wide receiver Kenny Stills. It seems like the team is just being cautious with their star QB but we'll continue to monitor in case it's something more. He's considered a top-three fantasy QB option this season.
