Drew Brees back in pads, not practicing fully

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

When a player is as central to a team’s fortunes as Drew Brees is to the Saints, his daily practice attire is worth noting. According to Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Saints quarterback was back in full pads for this morning’s practice.

He’s apparently not going through a full workload today, but the simple act of wearing pads is a step forward.

Fantasy Impact: 

Brees has been out of practice since Aug. 1 with a strained oblique, and the Saints haven’t said much beyond the general “day-to-day,” designation. The fear is oblique injury lingers into the season, so the Saints are doing whatever they can to play it safe with their star QB.
