Knee limits Drew Brees in practice


The Saints need a win against the Buccaneers this weekend to nail down a playoff spot and possibly a division title, so it’s not exactly an ideal Christmas present to find out that quarterback Drew Brees was limited in practice with a knee injury.

Brees didn’t mention anything about his knee while talking to reporters after last week’s loss to the Panthers and Mike Triplett of reports that neither he nor Sean Payton mentioned anything about the knee when they met the media after practice on Wednesday. The injury report was the first mention of anything to do with Brees’ knee.

Brees participated in the portion of practice open to the media and, as mentioned, there’s no suggestion that the injury is significant enough to force him to miss a game that the Saints need to win. It’s the first time he’s appeared on the injury list this season for any reason.

The Saints also officially ended safety Kenny Vaccaro’s season on Wednesday, placing him on injured reserve because of a broken ankle. Cornerback Terrence Frederick has been signed off of the Browns practice squad.

    Ted Robinson- radio call

    Ryan in the shotgun from the 10 yd line. It is 2nd down. Ryan takes the snap. Throws a slant to the left side. It’s wrestled, INTERCEPTED!!!!! The 49ers pick it! and NaVorro Bowman his redemption! NaVorro Bowman running it all the way for the td.! No greater redemption can a man seek. NaVorro Bowman who could not cover the onside kick , catches a deflected pass for an interception and runs it 7 miles for a td. (Eric Davis laughs)

    If Brees ain’t 100 percent, it’s over in New Awlins.

    I would like an explanation.

    Also with Kenny Vaccaro sidelines as well, I could see this team not making the playoffs and/or going one-and-done.
