Saints record-setting quarterback Drew Brees has been designated to return from the club's injured reserve list. Brees' change in status means he could be placed on the active roster and be eligible to play as soon Sunday against the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs. Coach Sean Payton has not indicated when he intends to play Brees but has said Brees is not someone the Saints would hurry back. The 41-year-old Brees was diagnosed with fractured ribs and a punctured lung after a sack on Nov. 15 against San Francisco. The Saints have gone 3-1 since with Taysom Hill starting.
