First of all let’s list what we all knew was coming. The Saints have sent their quarterback legend, Drew Brees, to Reserve/Injured.

We have had a bunch of news breaking today. From Taysom Hill being the starting QB on Sunday to the Saints move on Drew Brees.

Excerpt from Ross Jackson’s post:

The Saints’ future Hall of Famer has suffered compounded chest injuries over the last couple of games including multiple rib fractures to both sides and a collapsed lung.

Despite his early and very optimistic return timeline being 2-3 weeks per Dan Graziano of ESPN, it seemed like a very long shot that would indeed be the case. With Brees being sent to injured reserve, he will now miss at least three weeks with the shortened IR rules for the 2020 season. Meaning his earliest possible return would be on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles on December 13th. Though returning to the field could take additional time if needed.

The Saints will also be without RB Dwyane Johnson (Back) and TE Josh Hill (Concussion) who have been ruled out.

CB Marshon Lattimore (Abdomen) was limited and is ruled as questionable.

RB Alvin Kamara (Foot), RT Ryan Ramczyk (Knee), DE Cameron Jordan (Back), and DT Malcom Brown (Calf) were all full on Friday and are game ready.

The Falcons have not ruled anyone out or questionable.

The following players did not practice with the NIR/Rest designation. RB Todd Gurley, G James Carpenter, and C Alex Mack.

WR Calvin Ridley (Foot), WR Olamide Zaccheaus (Knee), and TE John Wetzel (Ankle) were all limited.

T Matt Gono who missed the first two days due to illness was full as were T Kaleb McGary (Knee) and TE Jaeden Graham (Knee/Toe).

The Saints are wearing black jerseys and pants.
