Jameis Winston opened the second half of Saints-Niners at quarterback for New Orleans, after Drew Brees got squished on a hard hit in the second quarter:

Kentavius Street of the Niners was called for roughing the passer on this play. It was a hard hit, but there’s little that Street could’ve done differently there.
Adam Schefter notes that Brees is still in uniform on the sidelines, so it’s unclear if he is out for the rest of the game at this juncture.
The Saints lead the Niners 17-10 in the third quarter.
We will update this post if there is new information on Brees’ status.
Update: The Saints have listed Brees as questionable to return with injured ribs.
