ESPN is reporting that Drew Brees will undergo thumb surgery as early as today and is expected to be sidelined about 6 weeks.
Brees will see a hand specialist in Los Angeles today after he injured his thumb in yesterday’s loss to the Rams.
#Saints QB Drew Brees has a torn ligament in his throwing thumb and he’s going to require surgery, sources say. The timeframe depends on the surgery, but he’s likely out 6 weeks. That’s the initial estimate.
