Saints Quarterback Drew Brees Has A Bruised Rotator Cuff, Could Miss Playing Time
As if it wasn't bad enough Saints fans with the 0-2 start, now it is being reported that quarterback Drew Brees suffered a bruised rotator cuff Sunday during the game with Tampa Bay.
No offense or defense, to many penalties and turn overs have plagued the Saints so far this preseason and at the start of the regular season. Plus do you realize that including the preseason the Saints are 0-6 this year!
Now the thought of not having the leader of the team out for a possible few weeks could be devastating for the Black and Gold.
An MRI confirmed that Brees did not suffer a serious shoulder injury this past Sunday, revealing a bruised rotator cuff with no tear. Brees will get a second opinion from orthopedic specialist Dr. James Andrews with another look at the MRI, and his availability will be determined by how the injury responds to treatment over the next few days.
Luke McCown is the Saints backup QB and would almost certainly replace Brees if he is unable to start this weekend for the Saints when they take on division rivals the Carolina Panthers at noon Sunday.
Hold your breath Saints fans, this might be a long season!
