Saints Place QB Drew Brees On Injured Reserve


The New Orleans Saints announced Friday that they’ve placed QB Drew Brees on injured reserve.

Brees is dealing with multiple rib fractures and a collapsed lung, so it’s not surprising that the Saints would make this move and buy him time to get healthy. 

Reports have said that the Saints are prepared to stary Taysom Hill at quarterback in Week 11 against the Falcons, even though it was Jameis Winston, who replaced Brees last week. 

It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks.

Brees, 41, is a former second-round pick of the Chargers back in 2001. After five years with the Chargers, Brees signed on with the Saints as a free agent in 2006.

Brees has spent the past 12 seasons in New Orleans. He agreed to a new two-year, $50 million contract with the Saints this past March. 

In 2020, Brees has appeared in nine games for the Saints and completed 73.5 percent of his passes for 2,196 yards, 18 touchdowns and three interceptions.
