DREW BREES TO HAVE HAND SURGERY IN LOS ANGELES TODAY

It appears that the second opinion was the same as the first one. Ed Werder of ESPN reports that Brees is set to have surgery in Los Angeles today after going through both consultations.

“I’m confident in the surgery that will take place and will dedicate myself to the rehab process to get back as quickly as I can,” Brees told Werder in a text message.

The surgery will be performed by Dr. Steven Shin and Brees also saw Dr. Tom Hunt in Houston before coming to a final decision about his next step.

Werder adds that a recovery timeline for Brees is expected to come once the surgery is complete. Reports on Monday pegged the timetable at six weeks, which would leave the Saints without their longtime offensive leader for a good chunk of the regular season.

I will let you  all know as soon as I hear anything.
