NEW ORLEANS — Drew Brees says he plans to return Sunday against the Cardinals.

Speaking with reporters Wednesday, Brees was asked if he would play Sunday, responding "that's the plan." But it's no slam dunk.

Sean Payton refused to make a commitment saying that he wouldn't make a decision until Sunday. That's been Payton's stance for several weeks as Brees' has continually eyed up a return for the Cardinals' game.

The Saints are 5-0 with Teddy Bridgewater as the Saints starting quarterback. Brees was injured in the week two loss to the Rams.
