Everything the Saints plan to do in 2014 hinges on the continued excellence (and therefore the health) of Drew Brees.
The Saints suffered a minor scare in Friday practice when QB Drew Brees was forced to leave camp early due to a strained oblique muscle.
The Times-Picayune reported that Brees has been listed as day-to-day and will miss Saturday’s scrimmage. Since the team has off on Sunday he can most likely make his return when camp resumes on Monday.
Brees has led the Saints to unprecedented heights as the team’s QB since being signed in 2006. Since 2006 he has started 127 out of 128 games (only missing one for a rest day after clinching the number one overall seed), and has set every major passing record in franchise history. In addition, Brees is the only QB in NFL history to accumulate multiple seasons passing for over 5,000 yards and has been in the top 2 for passing TDs every year since 2008.
Brees also led the Saints to their first and only Superbowl in 2009. They defeated the Indianapolis Colts 31-17 in Superbowl XLIV. Brees was named the game’s MVP.
