ESPN's Dianna Russini reports that Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) will start against the Cardinals today. He and the team clearly feel confident enough in that injured throwing thumb -- especially considering New Orleans is off next week. There's still a bit more risk here than usual, but Brees has plenty of upside vs. Arizona's 29th-ranked QB defense.

Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. HC Sean Payton refused to name his starting QB on Friday, but Brees has said that he plans on playing. We’ll continue to monitor the situation. Whoever is under center for New Orleans — Brees or Teddy Bridgewater — will be in a nice spot at home for Arizona’s 29th-ranked QB defense.

Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) said Thursday that he'll return for this weekend's game against the Cardinals, although it sounds like a final decision hasn't been made by the team. Assuming he plays, he'll carry some added risk in his 1st game back from that throwing thumb injury. But both Brees and the Saints obviously feel comfortable with his status. He gets a plus matchup against the Cardinals' 28th-ranked QB defense.

Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) returned to practice on Wednesday, getting in a limited session. HC Sean Payton told reporters that Brees "may be a game-time decision." Brees, meanwhile, said he's planning on playing. We'll get another update on his progress tomorrow. If he's under center on Sunday, he'll be an upside fantasy play in a plus matchup against the Cardinals.

Injury Predictor

Brees has lost just 1 start to injury in his Saints career — Week 3 of 2015. He sat with a bruised right rotator cuff. Brees also endured a torn right plantar fascia in December 2015, although it didn’t cost him any games. Injury-wise, he's been extremely fortunate to this point.
