Times-Picauyne - [Full Article]

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees playing status for Sunday's game against the Panthers is suddenly up in the air.

ESPN's Ed Werder said that Brees underwent an MRI on Monday afternoon following pain and weakness in his passing shoulder. Brees admitted on Sunday afternoon that his shoulder was bothering him after he was sacked and hit against Tampa Bay.

It was one of several hits Brees would experience throughout the 26-19 loss.

"Source: #Drew Brees experienced pain, weakness in passing shoulder from TB hit. Had MRI. Response to treatment to determine playing status," Werder tweeted.
