NEW ORLEANS, LA (WLOX) - New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees will be in that number when the Saints entertain the Dallas Cowboys 7:30 Sunday night in the Mercedes Benz Superdome.
Saints head coach Sean Payton said Brees looked sharp at Friday's practice and he plans on starting the veteran quarterback after Brees sat out last Sunday's game at Carolina with a bruised shoulder.
Brees suffered the injury after he got sacked against Tampa Bay in the second quarter of that game on September 20. Payton said Brees has responded to treatment and his rehab has gone well.
Luke McCown replaced Brees and played well in defeat.
