I suspected he didn't start or play much in the preseason for a reason. But still we won't know anything for another 48 hours due to treatments he's getting - probably cortisone shot or something.

My guess is we are waiting 48 hours for the swelling to go down so they can get a better look and see if there's not a more serious injury hidden there.

You can't... been laughing about that one a lot today. It's either torn or strained. My bet is a small tear that is just limiting and painful enough to put Brees out for 6-8 games, possibly the season.

I heard Smashmouth comfirmed it.

I'm waiting for what Peter King says on Brees.

Re: RUMOR - Torn Rotator Cuff

First of all it is not a rumor, but fact, that Drew Brees has a torn rotator cuff...

He's had it since he's been playing for us...

Second, what he does have is a reconstructed joint of sorts that requires continually rehab work, harder workouts than most other quarterbacks, to maintain the required strength and range of motion to perform as a passer...

Now, what may and probably did happened is he received an acute trauma (bad f*cking bruise) to that reconstructed joint upon being sacked...

And that is why he'll need to rest to reduce swelling and fluid accumulate...

Then he'll need to carefully balance rehab while not aggravating the recuperating reconstructed joint...

Usually 72 hours of recovery is necessary for a more accurate diagnostic test and diagnosis...

While I hate to see our most successful quarterback in team history go down like this, I look forward to the opportunity to see if Grayson can step up and show what moxie he has...

And if Grayson has the right stuff, then it'll be time to approach Drew to do the what's best for the team and retire gracefully and relieve the team of serious cap strain...

The rotator cuff is simply a cluster of four muscles and their tendons. A tear would usually occur in the tendon. Although, the muscles themselves can bruise like any other muscle. If you can ever been punched in the very upper shoulder you may have experienced a bruised rotator cuff and never knew it.

You have just confirmed that you have no clue what you are talking about. Who's laughing now?
