Reports out this morning said Drew Brees planned to throw today to determine the status of his bruised rotator cuff. It appears that went well and perhaps normal throwing strength has returned to that arm. If these positive reports are to be believed and there are no unexpected setbacks, it seems Brees may return to the starting QB role for this Sunday's primetime matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. Ed Werder tweeted the news:
We shouldn't expect Drew to put in a full practice session. At best, he'll probably be listed as 'limited' tomorrow on the Saints' practice report. They'll want to ease him back in and see how the arm feels Thursday morning. Still, it's encouraging that he will be able to resume practicing this week. He hasn't practiced since the injury occurred during the week 2 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
