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