Drew Brees to seek second opinion on thumb injury suffered vs. Rams
With Brees currently expected to miss the next six weeks in addition to the majority of Sunday afternoon’s action in Los Angeles, the future Hall of Fame quarterback has apparently encountered a more significant setback than initially expected.
As a result, Brees will be seeking a second opinion on his thumb injury while he will continue to “evaluate his options” going forward.
Drew Brees told me he will meet with Dr. Tom Hunt in Houston on Tuesday morning for a second opinion. “I am evaluating my options and will make the best decision very soon,” Brees said.

“Teddy came in ready to go,” Saints head coach Sean Payton said after his team’s Week 2 loss, via ESPN. “I don’t think we played particularly well around him. And I think when we watch that tape tomorrow, it’s not gonna be pleasant to watch for some guys.
“I felt real confident in Teddy — and do feel confident. … Listen, if you’re not playing well up front, I don’t care if it’s your Hall of Fame guy or your No. 3 guy. It’s gonna be difficult.”
Now an even 1-1, the Saints will take on the 2-0 Seattle Seahawks in Week 3.
