    Drew Brees is expected to make his preseason debut for the New Orleans Saints on Saturday night at Indianapolis after returning to full activity in Sunday's practice.

    "I feel good," said Brees, who missed the past two weeks with a strained oblique. "Today was my first day to kind of be full-go. I've been taking it very slow, very deliberate. No use in rushing something that could get worse. I wanted to make sure it was all good.

    "I'm still not 100 percent, but I hope that by Saturday I am."

    The Saints' injury report was full of good news on Sunday, with guard Jahri Evans, cornerback Keenan Lewis and receiver Marques Colston among those also back to full participation. And coach Sean Payton said he expects safety Jairus Byrd to step up his work to full-team drills on Monday, though Byrd was absent from Sunday's session.

    Brees said he expects to play about one half of football against the Colts on Saturday night, which is his typical workload in a third preseason game.
