New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees continues to progress from his right thumb injury.

The next step in the rehab process has Bress throwing footballs, which he has been recently doing.

Brees injured his right thumb in the Saints' 27-9 setback to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2 and had surgery just a couple of days later.

No official return date has ever been established for Brees, but most speculated the injury would keep him out 6-8 weeks.
