Saints fans are holding their breath when it comes to the injury to franchise quarterback Drew Brees, who Sunday was forced to leave the game against the Rams due to a hit on his hand by all-world Rams lineman Aaron Donald.
The Saints quarterback was set to see a a hand specialist in Los Angeles, and the results could determine the fate of the Saints season.
The 40-year-old was seen after the game with a wrap on his throwing hand that some theorized could mean a ligament injury.
Brees told reporters after the game that he was hoping that “it’s not too significant.”
The QB had X-rays on the hand at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, but did not want to say anything until after meeting with the hand specialist.
The Saints may have to stick with Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback, as they will stay on the west coast and play at 2-0 Seattle next Sunday.
