No word on Drew Brees’s possible return.
It appears to indeed be an issue with injured ribs.

Hopefully it is nothing serious and Brees is able to return next week against the division rival Atlanta Falcons. It’s pure speculation at this point, but a worst case scenario of broken ribs would likely be a 4-6 week absence.

Details are not known right now, but after successfully leading the Saints to a touchdown in a two-minute drill to end the first half, but Drew Brees is on the sideline with Jameis Winston in at quarterback to start the second half.
Of note, Drew had a shoulder injury the past two weeks that he’s been nursing and took a massive sack earlier in the first half. He could have a rib/core injury from the sack, or there could be something related to his shoulder from the sack.
We will update once additional details are known.
