Saints quarterback Drew Brees practiced Wednesday but with a brace on his left knee to help stabilize an unspecific injury he suffered on the final game-tying drive of regulation against the Falcons.

“Really just a lot of soreness,” Brees said. “Just from the hit it took.”

Brees said he had an MRI on Monday that came up negative.

“From Monday to yesterday to now, it feels a lot better,” Brees said.

This isn’t the first time Brees has worn a brace. He said he wore one his entire senior season in high school after suffering a knee injury his junior season.

“I was pleased with how he functioned,” Head Coach Sean Payton said. “He functioned fine. It’s something that as the week goes on, I think he’ll have no problem with and he did a real good job in all the team stuff today.”

I'm glad to know that he feels good about his knee. Having had problems in the past he understands how to deal with a bad knee....ultimately after the doctors take a look it's up to Drew to determine how much he should do and limit himself if necessary.

Before the hit to his knee Drew looked a bit slow, confused and gimpy, so i wonder what was going on before hand, i watched the game again and everybody was in slow motion almost including drew, PT and Lance i think is the only ones that had somewhat of a burst the entire game.
