METAIRIE, La. (AP) -- While Saints quarterback Drew Brees plans to again wear a plastic splint on his surgically repaired thumb against the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday, chances are he'll be on the field with an offense that is as healthy as it's been since the quarterback was injured early in a Week 2 loss to the Rams in Los Angeles.

Tight end Jared Cook, whose injured ankle kept him out of two games, including Brees' first game back from thumb surgery in Week 8, fully participated in practice on Wednesday, as did No. 3 receiver Tre'Quan Smith, who has not had a catch since injuring his ankle in Week 2.

Dynamic running back Alvin Kamara, who has missed two games with ankle and knee injuries, also practiced on a limited basis, and teammates sounded optimistic that he looked close to being ready. ...

Former New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has been transparent in his recovery from a torn Achilles tendon he suffered last year, sharing updates from his journey that started in a hospital bed after surgery and recently moved to a training facility. The latest word from the repeat-Pro Bowler puts him on a time table that’s still two weeks away from NFL tryouts.

It’s a setback for sure, considering Bryant previously said that he hoped for a mid-October return to the NFL. It’s unclear what’s delayed his recovery but he’s obviously putting in the work. ...

The first half of the season didn’t exactly go according to plan for Cook, whose signing kicked off excitement that the Saints would finally have someone to pair with Michael Thomas on passes deep downfield. Cook’s training camp performance only added fuel to that fire, but an undisclosed late-summer injury slowed him down.

Then Brees was hurt, spiking the chemistry they’d developed all offseason. It took Cook some time to build a connection with Teddy Bridgewater, but he finally seemed to hit his stride with 7 catches on 9 targets in his last two games, picking up 78 yards and scoring two touchdown receptions. Another injury caused him to miss the final two games before the bye week.

But now Brees is healthy, and Cook should be close to returning. The sooner those two NFL veterans can get to work together the better, because they could add an entirely new dimension to the Saints offense if they can get on the same page. ...
