Saints’ Quarterback Drew Brees suffers an injury
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees left Sunday’s loss to the Rams with a hand harm after the team’s 2nd collection and will have the difficulty examined by way of a consultant tonight in L.A.
The Saints QB changed into seen getting a heavy tape-task on his right wrist and hand during the second zone. Brees were given his hand hit with the aid of Aaron Donald and had it squished to his very own helmet.
“I definitely do not know at this factor,” Brees told reporters after the sport. “There’s only so much you can do aside from just [have] a doctor study it at the sideline. I am going to peer a hand expert and get his opinion and we can see what the next steps are.”
The Saints are travelling Sunday night to Seattle to practice all week at the college of Washington before subsequent week’s game with the Seahawks, in line with NFL network’s Steve Wyche. It isn’t always clear if Brees could make the ride with the group because he plans to look a specialist to assess his injured thumb, Wyche delivered.
“Yeah, I am concerned,” Brees said. “I am hoping it is no longer too massive.”
I’m hoping for the high-quality and preparing for whatever the next steps are probably consistent with the evaluation.
Saints instruct Sean Payton informed newshounds that Brees was experiencing ache in his hand when attempting to throw the soccer.
Payton delivered: “We will provide you with an update while the time comes.”
Before exiting, Brees changed into hit several instances, including the frenzy by using Donald that caused the damage. Brees finished 3 of his five passes for 38 yards and an INT (taken away from Jared cook dinner) earlier than the injury.
Teddy Bridgewater took over with the Saints trailing 3-zero inside the first zone. Teddy B stayed in New Orleans in a loose business enterprise, electing to be Brees’ insurance instead of trying to compete for a starting job. depending on how long Brees is out, preserving the veteran backup, whose profession became waylaid with the aid of an intense knee injury in 2016, can be very an essential flow for the defending NFC South champs.
