Brittany Brees reveals Saints QB Drew Brees played through more than just rib injuries


New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees missed four games this season with multiple fractured ribs and a collapsed lung. But according to a report from WWL TV’s Andrew Doak, the veteran QB also had a torn rotator cuff and torn fascia in his foot.

Doak sites a post from Brees’ wife Brittany’s Instagram as the source of the information.

Brees did appear on the Saints injury report earlier this year, with a shoulder injury.

The 42-year-old quarterback just completed his 20th NFL season and, according to multiple reports, is expected to retire.

He completed 70.5 percent of his passes this season for 2,942 yards and 24 touchdowns against six interceptions.
