Drew Brees surprised a Saints fan with an appearance during a segment The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday and gave Saints fans a hint about his playing status after missing last week's game with a bruised rotator cuff.

When DeGeneres asked Brees if he was going to play in Sunday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys, Brees said thought he would.

"There's not anything that's going to keep me off the field this Sunday," Brees said.
