The NFL reporter Nick Shook informs us that Brees is sidelined with multiple broken ribs and a collapsed lung. Right now we know he didn’t end up in the IR, but he’s still about to be sidelined for a certain period of time. The Saints are still hoping though that the future Hall of Famer will return shortly in action.
Drew Brees needed to leave the pitch in the beginning of the second half. It’s really unlucky period of time for him as Brees is currently struggling with an injury in his throwing shoulder. Because of this he had to limit his time in practice in the last few weeks.
Against the 49ers Drew Brees was replaced by Jameis Winston who completed 6 of 10 passes for 63 yards of total. It’s a funny fact that the Saints still defeated the 49ers despite of finishing with less than 250 yards in their record.
