Brees back full, along with 8 other Saints on injury report
Dave Cohen Reporting
Drew Brees was a full participant at Thursday's practice after being limited on Wednesday.
"I'm totally fine. Kinda doctors orders, swelling in the knee, just had to get it down. No big deal. I was totally fine today," Brees told WWL Saints Sideline Reporter Kristian Garic.
Coach Sean Payton described it as "a right knee bruise."
The Saints remain a 12.5 point favorite in the game with the Bucs at 3:25pm Sunday. The Saints must win to guarantee they get into the playoffs. If the Saints beat the Bucs and the Falcons can beat the Panthers in Atlanta, the Saints would win the NFC South and be the #2 seed in the NFC playoffs.
Nine players were listed on the Saints injury report, all of them were able to completely take part in practice, however.
