Drew Brees Posts Positive Injury Update
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.
