Drew Brees will head into Week 4 the same way he went into Week 3 – optimistic but uncertain about whether he will be able to play with a bruised rotator cuff.
“I’m day-to-day. Obviously I plan to and expect to start on Sunday,” the New Orleans Saints quarterback said in his weekly postgame interview with Cox Sports Television following the Saints’ 27-22 loss to the Carolina Panthers. “But if I don’t, we’re in good hands with Luke [McCown].”
Brees reiterated that his ability to play against the Dallas Cowboys next Sunday night will be a matter of “functionality.”
A report we had Sunday night said Brees is a long shot to play in Week 4. Brees may just be preparing in case, but owners should probably plan on being without him again.
