The New Orleans Saints, a preseason favorite to reach the Super Bowl out of the NFC, will need to struggle through the next six weeks without 40-year-old future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees, as The Inquisitr reported. Brees left the game in the first half of last week’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams with a thumb injury.
Former Minnesota Vikings first-round draft pick Teddy Bridgewater will take over for Brees, at least on a game-by-game basis, when the Saints travel to Seattle to face the 2-0 Seahawks, in a game that will stream live from CenturyLink Field.

New Orleans Coach Sean Payton has not fully committed to hand Bridgewater the starter’s job, saying that competing backup Taysom Hill will be “sprinkled in” to Sunday’s game, according to CBS Sports. Hill joined the team as an undrafted free agent out of Brigham Young University in 2017. In addition to his backup quarterback responsibilities, Hill is also listed as a kick returner and receiver.
But without Brees, Payton is likely to rely more heavily on the team’s leading rusher, Alvin Kamara, who has accumulated 142 yards over the first two games, according to USA Today.
Brees did not travel with the team to Seattle, after surgery on his hand earlier in the week. The star quarterback posted an update on his status, sort of, via Instagram.
