Good interview with Brees by Strief. Looks like he'll be playing if things go well in practice this week.“Close, close.”
That’s how New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees responded when Zach Strief, Voice of the Saints, asked how close he is to returning from injury.
“I’m going to practice this week, and I’m going to see how it feels,” Brees went on. “I’m tired of just throwing on air. I need some action. I need some competition.”
The Saints are 5-0 without the future Hall-of-Famer, but Brees is itching to get back as soon as he can.
“There’s a lot that goes into it,” Brees explained. “It’s different than just picking up a baseball and throwing a baseball or shooting a basketball. This is gripping a football and being able to throw it while someone’s hitting you and throwing it 50 yards and put it in a spot where nobody else can get it.
“I’m going to see how it responds, and we’ll go from there,” Brees said. “But, man, I’m hoping that it’ll be good to go this week.”
Brees also broke down the Saints big 36-25 win over the Chicago Bears.
