After his two-week hiatus to rest a strained oblique, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees looked really sharp during Wednesday night's practice and is ready to play according to head coach Sean Payton. Per ESPN:

After practice, Saints coach Sean Payton confirmed the obvious -- that Brees is indeed "ready to go" for Saturday night's preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Brees is expected to play about a half, which would be his typical workload in a third preseason game.

"I thought he looked pretty sharp tonight. There were a handful of throws that were exceptional," said Payton, who pointed out the way Brees was gradually increasing his workload off to the side during practice over the past two weeks. "I think we've handled it the right way, and he is pretty smart and he knew where he was at. My only concern was [whether] we had set our mind on a game maybe, and that really shouldn't dictate his healing.
Good news Saints fans.
