Drew Brees has ‘successful surgery’

News

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is recovering after having surgery on his thumb in Los Angeles.

The future Hall of Famer posted to Instagram ” Step 1 Complete…successful surgery.”

He also joked “This is my attempt at giving everybody a thumbs up.” with the thumbs up emoji.

Teddy Bridgewater entered last Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams after Brees injured a ligament near the thumb on his throwing hand while attempting a pass. Brees was unable to grip a football without pain on the sideline after the play.

Coach Sean Payton says he has no timetable for Brees’ return, but said he has no immediate plans to put Brees on injured reserve. He declined to name a starter for the Saints game at the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
