Brees reportedly needs surgery on torn ligament in hand, could miss 6 weeks or more | CBS Sports HQ
As expected, it’s not good news for Drew Brees. The former Super Bowl MVP exited the New Orleans Saints battle in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Rams with an apparent injury to the thumb on his throwing hand, which was so severe that it prevented him from being able to grip the ball or, subsequently, return to the game.
The Saints went on to lose 27-9 to the Rams and as they packed their bags to head northwest to face the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3, Brees wasn’t in tow. He remained behind in Los Angeles to see a hand specialist and although he was admittedly “concerned” the injury was “significant,” he also hoped it was anything but. As it turns out, his initial feelings were correct, because the 40-year-old has reportedly suffered a torn ligament his throwing hand that requires surgery to repair — per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
As such, Brees could miss upwards of the next six games.
