Drew Brees diagnosed with torn plantar fascia

NFL.com - [Full Article]

A trying season for Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints has taken an ugly turn.

A team source told NFL Media's Albert Breer on Tuesday that the perennial Pro Bowl quarterback was diagnosed with a torn plantar fascia after undergoing an MRI on the right foot he injured in Monday night's loss to the Detroit Lions.

Brees' status for Sunday's road game against the Jaguars is unknown. If the 36-year-old passer can't suit up, backup Matt Flynn would take the controls for an offense that ranks third in the NFL.

Fantasy Impact:

Even with the injury, Brees threw for 341 yards and three touchdowns against the Lions. In Denver, a partially torn plantar fascia has sidelined Peyton Manning since Week 10, meaning Brees is no sure bet to play again this season. Without Brees, the Saints offense takes a hit from a fantasy perspective.
