Saints News, 8/12/14: Brees Back In Pads, But Still Not Practicing Fully

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. In related news, be sure to watch the Ice Bucket Challenge video with Brees, Vitt, and Rob Ryan.
