However, Brees continued to show signs that he wonít be out for too long. He threw passes to receiver Kenny Stills and ran with cornerback Champ Bailey, among other exercises on an adjacent practice field.

Saints coach Sean Payton didnít bother with another daily status update calling Brees "day to day" and adding that Brees is "getting there."

Payton did, however, elaborate slightly when asked about the injuries to cornerbacks Bailey and Patrick Robinson and how theyíll affect the Saints' evaluation of that No. 2 cornerback battle. Although Payton didnít specify either player's injury, he predicted both will return to practice soon.

Bailey, who has been sidelined since July 31, did more running on the side Monday than we have seen to date. Robinson, who left Sundayís practice early, spent some time on the stationary bike Monday.

"I think (Bailey) is making progress, and I think sooner than later heís gonna be back out here," Payton said. "Champís someone thatís smart enough to know his body and obviously wants to make sure heís 100 percent. ...

From a friend of mine today who is at Greenbrier, "Brees running drills with Kenny Stills this morning so don't listen to the media, he is practicing."

Drew needs the reps !!!!!!!!!

PRob and Champ are two that worries me. lets hope they can make the season or at least rotate properly with injuries. one out, one in, one out, one in ..... and so forth through out the season and not catch both on the bench at the same time

I'm concerned that Drew is not getting any reps with the first string. I now he is a veteran but even veterans, especially those in a key role, need the reps & some game time since offense is about timing.

Our elite QB is the last person we should be concerned about. He's fine, guys.

I talked with my physical therapist yesterday about Brees. He said the oblique strain is no big deal and will not be an issue at all with the rest they are giving it.

On a distantly related topic, they are going to dry needle the point of the shortened core in my bicep tomorrow. I can't wait. Seriously. I learn more and more about sports medicine every time I injure myself.
