Drew Brees is heading back to Los Angeles.
The Saints quarterback will have surgery to repair a torn ligament on his throwing thumb by Dr. Steven Shin this week in L.A, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported, per a source informed. Shin is the Rams‘ hand specialist, Pelissero added.
Brees’ recovery is still expected to take six to eight weeks. The Saints have not yet made any move to put Brees on injured reserve, which would keep him out at least eight weeks, Pelissero added.
