    Saints' Drew Brees: Won't need surgery

    Brees (foot) is not expected to need surgery to repair the torn plantar fascia in his right heel, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports. Brees visited with Dr. Robert Anderson, who recommended that the quarterback rest for four-to-six weeks before easing back into training activities. The foot injury didn't stop Brees from finishing the season on a high note, as he threw for 300+ yards (without any interceptions) in each of his final four games. There have been some reports suggesting that the Saints might move on if Brees won't take an outright pay cut for 2016, but it's hard to imagine that any team would actually be so foolish. If anything, Brees will likely be offered an extension that allows him to take home even more money in 2016 while also reducing his cap hit. He's still one of the top quarterbacks in the league, and his 2016 outlook is brightened by the emergence of Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead.

    Saints' Drew Brees: Throws for 323 yards against Atlanta

    Brees completed 32 of 42 passes for 323 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Atlanta. Rumors have swirled in recent weeks that Sunday could be Brees' and head coach Sean Payton's final game in gold and black. If that's the case, Brees has put together a heck of a resume for his future employer in recent weeks, averaging 347 yards per game with a 9-0 touchdown-to-interception ratio in his final four games as the Saints went 3-1. Over the past two weeks, Brees has reportedly battled the same foot injury that has sidelined Peyton Manning. In those two games, Brees has managed to collect 735 yards and four touchdowns.

    Saints' Drew Brees: Active Sunday

    Brees (foot) is listed as active Sunday at Atlanta, the Saints' official site reports. Despite tending to a Grade 2 tear of the plantar fascia near his right heel, Brees will step foot on the field within striking distance of the fifth 5,000-yard campaign of his noted career. While he needs 453 yards to do so, he's thrown for at least that much on one occasion this season, in a Week 8 shootout with the Giants.

    Saints' Drew Brees: Limited Thursday

    Brees (foot) was limited in practice Thursday, the Saints' official site reports. After a limited showing Thursday, Brees will log more practice reps than a week ago if he completes individual drills Friday as well. Don't expect much more activity, though, as he treads carefully on the Grade 2 tear of the plantar fascia in his right foot, which he sustained in Week 15.

    Saints' Drew Brees: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Brees (foot) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, the Saints' official site reports. Brees brushed off a torn plantar fascia in his right foot to post his second-most yards (412) of the season Sunday against the Jaguars. If he follows last week practice schedule, he'll sit out Thursday as well before returning in a limited capacity to wrap up the week. Barring a setback, though, he'll be under center Sunday against the Falcons' 15th ranked pass defense.

    Saints' Drew Brees: Passes for 412 yards and three scores

    Brees (foot) completed 25 of 36 passes for 412 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 38-27 win over the Jaguars. Brees played through his right foot injury last week, and ended up posting big numbers in the second half. That rolled over into the first half of Sunday's win against Jacksonville, as he threw for over 250 yards and two scores. Assuming he didn't suffer any setbacks, he'll play on the road against NFC South rival Atlanta next week.

    Saints' Drew Brees: Active Sunday

    Brees (foot) is listed as active Sunday versus the Jaguars, Evan Woodbery of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. With nothing to play for in reality, Brees would be excused for missing the second game of his career due to injury, but a Grade 2 tear of the plantar fascia near his right heel won't stop him from being under center on the Saints' first offensive snap. Aside from a lack of mobility, pain tolerance will likely determine his level of comfort in the pocket, as evidenced by the "horrible, miserable" discomfort that the 37-year-old endured throughout the week. If he's eventually pushed to the sidelined, either Matt Flynn or rookie Garrett Grayson would be entrusted with QB duties.

    Saints' Drew Brees: Expected to start Sunday

    Brees (foot) is expected to start Sunday against the Jaguars, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Brees is dealing with a torn plantar fascia, an injury that has sidelined plenty of players, but Brees has said throughout the week that he will play through the ailment. He'll have tight end Ben Watson (knee) available to him, so while he will be physically hobbled, he'll have nearly all of his receivers available.

    Saints' Drew Brees: Listed as questionable

    Brees (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. It's not immediately clear how much work Brees got in Friday, but with him listed as questionable, he will have a chance to play Sunday as he expects. If Brees does play Sunday, he will take on a Jaguars team that allowed just one touchdown pass over its last two games after giving up seven passing scores in the previous two weeks.
