Drew Brees

The big game is set to have the bigtime quarterback matchup.

Drew Brees is back and healthy enough to start Sunday for the Saints against the reigning Super Bowl champion Chiefs, first reported ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Saints confirmed the report Friday afternoon.

The Saints reportedly believe Brees is fully healthy, and team doctors have cleared him to play. Brees suffered 11 rib fractures and a punctured lung before being placed on injured reserve.

In place of Brees, Taysom Hill has started the past four games behind center and has posted a 3-1 record.

New Orleans (10-3) takes on Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City (12-1) inside the Superdome at 4:25 p.m. Sunday.
