Drew Brees attempts best ‘thumbs up’ on Instagram after successful thumb surgery

New Orleans Saints star quarterback Drew Brees will undergo surgery on his passing hand after being examined by two specialists.

Though Bridgewater took Brees' place on Sunday after he went down with the injury, Payton declined to officially name a starter.

Payton replied that "it may be (obvious)". It wouldn't surprise me if more owners dropped Winston than added him when waivers run.

Not that the Seahawks are anxious about what's said publicly.

Drew Brees' recovery is expected to start Wednesday.

Until Brees' return in early-to-mid November, the Saints (1-1) must find a way to remain relevant in the NFC and keep Atlanta (1-1), Tampa Bay (1-1) and Carolina (0-2) at bay in the NFC South. In his first year as a starter in Minnesota back in 2014, he nearly three for over 3,000 yards and eclipsed the mark the next season.

Brees' absence "really didn't change anything at all for us", Rams pass rusher Dante Fowler said.

That's a huge turn of events, but also underscores why you shouldn't get worked up over a team's strength of schedule before the season kicks off, as you never know how things will unfold.

"I told him I'm hoping for the best", Goff said of his postgame chat with Brees.

Russell Wilson, the starting quarterback for the Seahawks, tweeted a video at Brees. It's going to be fascinating how oddsmakers view the difference between Brees and Bridgewater, especially on the road.

Seattle middle linebacker Bobby Wagner, in fact, said Brees' ability to decipher defenses is among his most dangereous attributes.

Brees said it was tough for him to watch from the sideline Sunday.

Even if you aren't targeting a player to use immediately, you should also be thinking about long-term value when scanning your waiver wire for potential pickups. That includes hoping Bridgewater can be much better when he's prepared to start vs. the major struggles in relief he had in Los Angeles. The quarterback stayed behind in Los Angeles for surgery while the rest of the team traveled to Seattle for their next game.

Whether it's Bridgewater or Hill - or some combination of both - playing quarterback for the Saints on Sunday, you can bet the offense will truck along just fine as long as Kamara and Thomas are in the fold.

On a Jared Goff fumble in the second quarter, the Saints picked up the ball and as they were taking the ball towards the end zone, the officials blew the play dead before reaching the end zone.
