Quarterback Drew Brees will start on Sunday when the New Orleans Saints host the Arizona Cardinals, multiple outlets reported Saturday.
The NFL's all-time leader in passing yards has been sidelined since tearing a ligament in his right thumb in a Week 2 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sept. 15.
Brees, 40, was a limited participant in practice this week and was listed as questionable on the Saints' injury report.
Teddy Bridgewater went 5-0 as the starter after replacing Brees, completing 67.7 percent of his passes for 1,370 yards with nine touchdowns and two interceptions this season.
Brees was 35-of-48 passing for 408 yards, two touchdowns and two picks before sustaining the injury, which required surgery to repair.
