I've heard the scans have been sent to Dr. James Andrews to look at. The conflicting reports may be a result of conflicting opinions by the doctors.

My thinking is simple. Brees never misses a game even if hurt, it cant be good.

I agree with you. Sean Payton is saying there's a lot of BS flying around the interwebs right now.....

Same . Im just worried that Brees has been told they cant do anymore for that shoulder, so just try to work it out. Have surgery to maybe pass well again and miss one season, or just hang it up, and you should be fine in a year or 2 with no pain.
We both know Brees will skip the surgery to play. Id rather he hang it up and not be in pain, hes done enouph or wait till next season.

Re: RUMOR - Torn Rotator Cuff

I had a torn rotater cuff and labrum 7 years ago and it still hurts like hell if IG lift something wrong. Granted I didnt have the access to the kind of medical staff he does, but its no joke. I have said for years that Payton has leaned way to heavily on the pass for Drew to be able to play into his late 30s. A running game would have gone a long way extending his career.

First pick being spent on a QB like Andrew Luck

I hope they bypass Mckown and give the reigns to Grayson, see what he's made of.
Mckown is known because those stupid commercials.
Unfortunate I don't know what he was selling.

This is true. When I had mine, x-ray didn't detect it and an author gram didn't see it either which is why I worked with it for 3 months. So depending on your tolorence of pain you could still throw with it but the strength is just not there. Only a MRI and 2 doctors finally saw my tear and when they went in also found a bone spur that had to be shaved down so just because the first Dr. Didn't see anything I wouldn't exhale a sigh of relief just yet. When Dr. Andrews gives the all clear then I'll breath that sigh of relief. Hopefully it is just bruised but those 2 hits could have easily caused a tear with his arm in motion.

Re: RUMOR - Torn Rotator Cuff

It reportedly happened towards the end of last season too. If he couldnt heal from that during an entire offseason then it doesnt look good for him healing in time to play again.
