Ed Werder: No timetable for Saints’ Drew Brees return

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, there is no timetable for New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees’ return. This contradicts an earlier report by TheScore that said he would be out two weeks.

Brees suffered five broken ribs and a collapsed lung. The veteran signal-caller came into Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers with an injury.

Then, after taking a big hit from a 49ers defensive player, Brees was clearly in a lot of pain. He got up and finished the drive, which resulted in a touchdown.

But he did not return for the second half against the 49ers. Jameis Winston came in to finish off the game.

Winston is expected to be the team’s starter with Brees out of the lineup. He signed a one-year deal with the Saints in the off-season following a tenure with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Head coach Sean Payton prefer Winston to be the signal-caller now, as the offensive coaching can use Taysom Hill all over the field.

“Source: The second opinions Drew Brees solicited confirmed the original diagnosis by doctors treating his injuries that the #Saints  quarterback suffered a collapsed lung and a total of five fractured ribs,” Werder said in a Twitter post. “The doctors have not determined a time frame for the quarterback’s return.”

Brees went 8 of 13 for 76 yards. He also had one touchdown pass before leaving the game.

Winston came in to replace Brees, like mentioned beforehand. He went 6 of 10 for 60 yards to help guide the Saints to a 27-13 win.
