Drew Brees one of the prominent quarterbacks of the New Orleans Saints was out of the game for the past few weeks as he had a thumb injury during his match against the Rams.
If sources are true then he might appear for week 8 game and “that’s the plan.” Further, Coach Sean Payton of Orleans stated that: “Brees will need to show a few things before returning to the field.”
He also said that: “It’s making sure that it’s healed correctly, he’s got the strength and all those things necessary,” and it’s on your throwing hand, and your thumb is almost 50 percent of that. We’ll assess it day-by-day here and keep everyone posted toward the week’s end. We might have to wait until Sunday to see if he’s playing or not.”
Adding to this he spoke saying: “That’s something a lot of people from the outside in say, ‘Well, let’s rest him one more week and then we have a bye week,’” Payton said. “Look, if he’s ready to play, he’s ready to play. This game is an important game, just as the first game after the bye is important.”
Though Drew was missing the matches, his absence was replaced by his teammate Teddy Bridgewater who had played outstandingly with a 5-0 win.
Since Drew’s arrival is not confirmed they have another backup Alvin Kamara who is also out as he had an ankle and knee injury on Wednesday. This confusion amidst the Saints is giving a tough time for the Cardinals who are to face the next game with them.
