Drew Brees gets 'positive results' in evaluation

Times-Picauyne - [Full Article]

w Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees met with renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham on Monday and got "very positive" feedback after an "extensive evaluation," according to ESPN's Ed Werder.

Brees was on the sidelines for the Saints' loss Sunday at the Carolina Panthers. He told CSTV that his ability to return this week would be based on arm strength and movement, not a pain threshold.

Saints coach Sean Payton said Monday that Brees was showing progress daily.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Saints (0-3) play the Dallas Cowboys (2-1) on Sunday at home. Werder, who has reported statements from Brees and information that appears to be coming from Brees since last week, also added that Brees found the evaluation with Andrews "very positive" and "beyond expectations," the story said. Werder was in our news last last week saying Brees' injury wasn't as long term as some other outlets reported, so it appears this can be taken seriously.
