Will New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees play this Sunday versus the Arizona Cardinals?

Saints head coach Sean Payton said the team may not know until the morning of the game, but added it's Brees' job whenever he's ready.

Brees was back at practice today for the first time since injuring his right thumb on September 15th, and when asked if he'll play this week, he responded, "That's the plan."

He was officially listed as a limited participant.

Brees added he'll wait and see how the thumb feels after a normal week of practice.
