- Werder adds that he is awaiting the Dr. Robert Anderson’s opinion on the injury.
According to Werder, Brees is expected to be “day-to-day” and hopes to play in the final two weeks of the season. However, the injury is believed to be in the foot he plants when he throws.
While Brees is not anticipated to miss a lot of time, this is the same injury that Broncos QB Peyton Manning sustained back in Week 10, so Brees missing extended period remains a possibility, though it seems slight at this point in time.
Salguero suggested the Dolphins could offer the Saints their 2016 and 2017 first-round picks along with QB Ryan Tannehill. If the injury shows any extensive damage, it would be safe to assume Brees’ trade demand could drop.
Brees, 36, has two years remaining on his five-year, $100 million contract that included $40 million guaranteed. He stands to make base salaries of $18.75 million and $19.75 million over the next two years and will carry a $30 million cap figure in 2016.
This season, Brees has thrown for 4,135 yards while completing 67.6 percent of his passes to go along with 28 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
