Brees moved into fourth place on the NFL's career yardage list Sunday, surpassing Hall of Famer John Elway, but the Saints fell to 0-2 with a 26-24 loss in Cleveland.

Brees entered Sunday's game needing 62 yards to go past Elway, who finished with 51,475 yards. Brees overtook the Denver Broncos legend with a 6-yard pass to tight end Jimmy Graham with 1:56 left in the second quarter. He had two touchdowns to Graham in the defeat and went 27 of 40 for 237 yards, giving him 51,651 for his career.

Brees fully participated in practice Sunday for the first time since straining his left oblique muscle two weeks ago.

Brees hasn't missed a start due to injury since coming to New Orleans in 2006 and says he plans on playing against Indianapolis on Saturday night in the Saints' third preseason game.
