New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is pretty banged up right now. The veteran QB has multiple rib fractures on both sides of his chest and a collapsed lung on his right side. Anyone with those injuries would be in a world of hurt.

However, Brees put a positive spin on his injury with an update on Twitter.

Brees appears to be in good care by his family.

The quarterback suffered the injuries over a two-week period, forcing him to miss the second half of Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. Brees had been on a tear of late, throwing 2 or more touchdowns in the last three games prior to Sunday.

Brees' early exit meant more playing time for backup Jameis Winston. He completed 6 passes for 63 yards in the Saints' win over the 49ers. With Brees expected to miss multiple weeks, that opens the door for Winston to serve as a starting QB once again.

FanDuel Sportsbook has the Saints as 4.5-point favorites over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 11, even despite Brees' absence.
