Saints vs. Cowboys SNF Final Injury Report: Drew Brees, Keenan Lewis, Jairus Byrd Expected to Return

New, comments

The Saints are close to being at full strength for their Sunday night prime time showdown with the Dallas Cowboys.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

It's looking like the Saints will finally be getting some key players back out on the field this weekend, most importantly, Drew Brees. Keenan Lewis and Jairus Byrd are both listed as probable to play Sunday night against the Cowboys, the first time this season. Great news all around and reason to be optimistic for Saints fans.

Only guard Jahri Evans is expected to miss Sunday night's matchup so expect to see more of Senio Kelemente.
