Report: Drew Brees has torn plantar fascia in right foot
 
Sit him for the season; risking further injury to the MVP on the team would be criminal!

If he doesn't play looks like Santa brought an extra win for Jacksonville and the failclowns!

Saints quarterback Drew Brees became the fourth quarterback in NFL history with 60,000 passing yards on Monday night, but his ability to continue up the ladder in 2015 will be complicated by a foot injury.

After the loss to the Lions, Brees said that he would have an MRI on his right foot due to an injury suffered during the game that left him wearing a protective boot. Ed Werder of ESPN reports that the test showed a torn plantar fascia and that Brees wants to play in the final two games, but is still waiting an evaluation from Charlotte-based foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson.

If the report is accurate, that would mean two of the four passers with more than 60,000 yards would be in contact with Anderson about similar injuries. Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is dealing with a partially torn plantar fascia and may need surgery to repair the issue.

Injuries affect different people in different ways, but Manningís been out for several weeks so thereís some chance that Brees may have played his last down for the Saints this season. With talk about Sean Paytonís future, or lack thereof, in New Orleans a background topic for much of the year and Brees carrying a huge cap number for a team that needs help at many positions this offseason, some will likely wonder if heíll play any for them next season.

Shut it down Drew. Time to see what we have in Grayson! With that being said, Matt Flynn will probably start.

You don't want to destroy Grayson's future is he isn't ready. I still think David Carr would have been a good QB if he wasn't thrown into the lions den right away.

Sit him and let the rookie play. I don't care if we lose the last two games if that gives some time for Grayson to develop.

Can't argue with that. We're playing Jax and ATL.

Whats the worst that can happen?

Perhaps his inexperience results in several bad throws that put our WR's and RB's in a position to get hurt? Or he holds on to too long and suffers a career ending injury?

Lets roll the dice, injuries to key players be damned!!!

If he can and wants to play I have a feeling he will. Something tells me he's going to want to finish the season.

I doubt Brees sits out the Jags game, ATL maybe
