Drew Brees would love to knock the Ravens off his football bucket list — they're the one team he's never beaten. But it won't be easy since they have the NFL's No. 1-ranked defense.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore practiced fully Wednesday -- a good sign that he will be able to return from the concussion he suffered in Week 5. Lattimore has not been fully cleared through the NFL's concussion protocol yet, but he is obviously trending in the right direction. Meanwhile, two players missed practice on Wednesday: WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) and DT Taylor Stallworth (ankle). That's not a great sign for either player coming off of a bye week, though we will know more about their potential availability on Thursday and Friday. If Ginn can't play Sunday at Baltimore, it will obviously mean bigger roles for rookie WR Tre'Quan Smith and veteran Cameron Meredith, both of whom stepped up in Ginn's absence in Week 5.

The Saints re-signed DT Jay Bromley and released CB Demetri Goodson. They also made two practice-squad switches, adding WR Shane Wynn and DB Chris Campbell while releasing WR Tanner McEvoy and DB Darius Hillary.

Sean Payton said Saints CB Marshon Lattimore is still in the concussion protocol because the team hasn't practiced yet since he suffered the injury in last week's Monday night game. But he said he's doing well. That's obviously good news since Lattimore is New Orleans' No. 1 cornerback and the Saints already lost veteran nickel corner Patrick Robinson to injured reserve last month.

Drew Brees was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for the second time in three weeks and 24th time in his career (third most in NFL history behind Tom Brady, 30, and Peyton Manning, 27). Brees had one of the best performances of his 18-year career, completing 26 of 29 passes for 363 yards and three TDs in a 43-19 rout of the Redskins. His completion percentage of 89.7 was a career best. ... And, oh by the way, he became the NFL's all-time leader in career passing yards in the process.

Drew Brees' 62-yard touchdown pass to rookie Tre'Quan Smith made him the NFL's all-time leader in yards passing and sent the New Orleans Saints well on their way to a lopsided 43-19 victory over the mistake-prone Washington Redskins on Monday night.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

What a way to send Drew Brees over the top: On the night when the Saints QB became the NFL's all-time passing yardage leader, the Saints routed the Redskins 43-19 to move to 4-1 on the season heading into a Week 6 bye. Brees was nearly perfect on his historic night, completing 26 of 29 passes for 363 yards and three touchdowns. His completion percentage of 89.7 was a new career best. And he now has 499 TD passes in his career, fourth all-time.
