Saints QB Drew Brees Expected to Miss at Least Six Weeks

Drew Brees left Sunday’s game against the Rams with an injured thumb.

After seeing a hand specialist in LA, it has been determined that Brees tore a ligament in his thumb on his throwing hand and will miss at least six weeks of the season:

Teddy Bridgewater will take over at quarterback for the Saints.

New Orleans made Bridgewater the highest paid back up QB in the NFL. Bridgewater had opportunities to become a starter for some teams, but turned them down to work with Sean Payton and the Saints.

It is now time for Bridgewater to come through on his end of the deal, as it is no small task to replace the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards.

Bridgewater was 17-30 passing for 165 yards in relief of Brees against the Rams.
