Drew Brees meeting with hand specialist after injuring thumb

Drew Brees out of surgery posts a ‘thumbs up’ on social media

Drew Brees posted on social media to let fans know that his thumb surgery was a success

For the Saints, starting QB Drew Brees injured his right thumb after hitting it against Donald's with 6:48 left in the first quarter, starting LG Andrus Peat sustained an ankle injury that prevented him from returning, WR Tre'Quan Smith suffered an ankle injury which knocked him out of the game and WR Keith Kirkwood hurt his hamstring before the game. It now is not clear if Brees will be making the trip with the team since he plans to see a specialist to evaluate his injured thumb, Wyche added. Brees said he would be seeing a specialist soon, as there are only so many tests that can be done at the stadium.
