Saints QB Drew Brees leaves Rams game with injury

Drew Brees, Saints

The New Orleans Saints may be without Drew Brees for the rest of their game against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Brees left the game with a hand injury and is questionable to return to the game per Adam Schefter.

The 40-year-old quarterback injured his hand when he attempted a pass and Aaron Donald bulldozed his way into the backfield. As Brees threw the ball, Donald’s hand collided with his and he immediately grimaced in pain.

While Brees remains on the sideline, Teddy Bridgewater has come into the game to replace him.

Bridgewater has only started one game in the NFL since 2015. Last year, the former Minnesota Vikings quarterback started in place of Brees in Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers.

In that game, the veteran quarterback struggled as he completed 14 of his 22 pass attempts for 118 yards, one touchdown, and an interception. It’s safe to say the offense looks vastly different without Brees under center.

As for Brees, the Saints quarterback has luckily been able to avoid injuries since his arrival in New Orleans in 2006. Furthermore, Brees has started in all 16 games of a season in 10 out of the previous 13 seasons.

The only seasons that he didn’t complete the year was when Sean Payton decided to hold him out to end the season.

To begin the game on Sunday, Brees was driving the Saints downfield before Jared Cook dropped a pass that turned into an interception for John Johnson.

At the moment, it seems that Brees’ day is done while Bridgewater will attempt to take down the reigning NFC Champs.
