There is no question that Saints QB Drew Brees suffered an MCL strain in September, but he’s no longer wearing a brace to protect the left knee. He says that persistent reports that he may need microfracture surgery at the end of the season are ridiculous. Brees was impressive against the Steelers, and the Panthers will have their hands full with Marques Colston (46 catches) and Lance Moore, who leads the team with five TD catches. Saints RB Chris Ivory suffered a mild concussion against the Steelers, but he’s been a pleasant surprise with 332 yards rushing and a 5.0 average. The only knock on Ivory is that he’s not a natural receiver out of the backfield like Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas.
