The thumb injury suffered by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees earlier this year (and the cutting-edge surgical procedure that followed) has been one of the defining storylines of the Saints season so far. But we’re close to this story arc progressing further, if not reaching its conclusion.

Per a report from Jeff Duncan of The Athletic, Brees hopes to play in Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals. He would be about five weeks removed from the surgery to repair a torn ligament in the thumb of his throwing hand, which would be pushing the initial six- to eight-week recovery timeline doctors suggested. It’s ambitious, but not impossible. Basketball players who have experienced the same injury often return in as few as four weeks, but a six-week recovery is more common. Brees is the first quarterback to try out this treatment, so it’s unclear how differently his recovery has gone compared to expectations.

That said: do the Saints really need Brees back so soon? This home game with the Cardinals inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome is their last game until the Week 9 bye, which would give Brees more time to fully recover and get up to speed. The Saints have been rolling in his absence, improving to 6-1 on the year so far after a 1-1 start.

With other key players like running back Alvin Kamara and tight end Jared Cook managing injuries of their own, it makes some sense for the Saints to ride it out one more game without Brees. They’ve found a formula that works, and it would be better for him to return at full strength rather than hurry back too soon just for the sake of it.

As for Saints coach Sean Payton: he was noncommittal when asked about Brees’ potential return in Week 8 after beating the Bears. He did take time to point out that any comments from the FOX broadcasters that Brees is expected to play next week were incorrect.

“I’m not even discussing it,” Payton said during his postgame press conference. “I’m sorry.”

Obviously Brees’ participation on the next week’s injury reports are worth monitoring. He’s been spotted wearing an external brace and handing off the ball in drills in recent practices, but the Saints haven’t reported him throwing an NFL regulation-sized football yet in team drills.
