New Orleans Saints fans may panic a little more now, as reports have emerged that cornerback Delvin Breaux has suffered a broken fibula from Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders.

The Advocate’s Nick Underhill and NOLA.com’s Josh Katzenstein had the initial report, and it has spread like wildfire.

From the television broadcast where Breaux was on the ground from his injury, it appeared that he said to the training staff, “I can’t get up.” Breaux had to be helped off the field, and was eventually carted off.

Look for veteran Cortland Finnegan to get a quick phone call along with Sterling Moore to quickly get up to speed. This young and inexperienced secondary group has their hands full in Week 2 with the New York Giants.
