Drew Brees to seek second opinion on thumb injury suffered vs. Rams

Drew Brees

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is expected to miss an extended period of time due to a thumb injury suffered on Sunday afternoon against the Los Angeles 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.

“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.
