Saints ‘Bracing’ for Drew Brees to Miss Time

Videos by OutKick

Drew Brees got crunched by Niners defensive end Kentavius Street on Sunday, and Jameis Winston finished the game at quarterback. Now, the question is whether Brees will miss more time, and, if so, how much. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Saints are “bracing” for Brees to miss some time:

At 7-2, the Saints are currently a half-game ahead of the 7-3 Buccaneers for first place in the NFC South.

New Orleans’ next four opponents:

  • Atlanta
  • @Denver
  • @Atlanta
  • @Philadelphia

The silver lining for the Saints is that Winston is one of the more experienced backup quarterbacks in the league, and last year New Orleans went 5-0 in games that Teddy Bridgewater started while Brees was hurt.
