Saints head coach Sean Payton doesn’t seem too worried about Drew Brees’ knee, saying that the QB is “fine” despite popping up on the injury report with knee inflammation according to Katherine Terrell of The Athletic.
Payton added that the Saints just listed him on the injury report in case he had to put a sleeve on for practice. Brees is good to go for the team’s Week 17 matchup against the Panthers.
The offense is still battling for better playoff seeding and is expected to be full go. The bigger question is whether or not Brees and the passing game will have to put the ball in the air very often against the Panthers’ run-funnel defense.
