Brees Has Torn Ligament In Throwing Thumb That Will Require Surgery, Likely Out 6 Weeks
The verdict on Brees' thumb is in, and while it isn't the best news Saints fans, it also isn't the worst.
This means the Saints will be putting their faith in Teddy and/or Taysom for the better part of the next two months. Luckily, the Saints are 1-1 halfway through a grueling first four weeks of their NFL regular season struggle.
We've got the Seahawks in Seattle, Dallas at home, Tampa Bay at home, Jaguars in Jacksonville, Bears in Chicago, and Arizona at home before a Week 9 bye. In what would be pure dramatic comeback fashion, the initial timetable puts Drew back on the field for the November 10 matchup against the rival Atlanta Falcons at home in the dome.
Let's send all our good Who Dat energy to Drew and just hope that he's in the best "hands."
