SURGERY REQUIRED FOR DREW BREES Saints News

Saints Quarterback Drew Brees is expected to be out for between 6-7 weeks.  He expected to have surgery on his right thumb to repair a torn ligament.

 

The Saints must make a critical decision. According to Adam Schefter, if New Orleans place Brees on IR, he will not be able to practice and won’t return for 8 weeks.

 

The team will now turn to backup QB Teddy Bridgewater to lead the team with Brees‘ injury as they face the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Taysom Hill will be his backup. The team may seek out additional help, but a dependable veteran is few and far between.

More updates on Brees and the quarterback situation will be reported later this week.
