The Saints won't have Drew Brees on the field in Week 3.

Every game, all season

Saints coach Sean Payton announced Friday that Brees will not play on Sunday against the Panthers. Brees is dealing with a shoulder injury sustained in last week's loss to the Buccaneers.

"Drew Brees will be out for this game," Payton said. "He'll travel, and I think just where he's at in the rehab and his strength, that he felt, and we all felt like it would be too early for him to play this weekend."

"I would say next week we'll continue the process, and without trying to make an estimation about his return, we felt like he made progress without the week, and yet he's not where he needs to be or where we feel comfortable with the strength that he needs. But he did get better each day and we'll just see where he's at next week."



Well the McCown era has begun

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, coach Sean Payton announced Friday. Brees suffered a rotator cuff injury against the Buccaneers last week.

It will be the first time in Brees' career with the Saints he has missed a start due to injury. Luke McCown will start for the Saints, Payton added.

Around the NFL will have more on this story soon.

Re: Brees Out versus Panthers

Smart decision. Let him rest and rehab that shoulder. McCown is logic answer. You don't throw rookie QB to the wolves.

Let's see what the "Generator" can do.... For some odd reason I see us getting the Victory call it a gut feeling or maybe it's this Daquiri either way I'll be watching !

I have this hollow feeling in my stomach that this will be a repeat event. Week after week we will wait for the announcement as to whether Brees will or won't play.

I could tell when he never moved his right arm in that video (and his demeanor) that he more than likely would not play.

Win this week and I bet he sits out Dallas.

Lose and he'll play Dallas guaranteed

Probably so.

I wonder if Drew made the call or Payton?

BTW: If we sign another QB next week, that may be a sign that its more serious than they're letting on.
