NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Drew Brees suffered multiple rib fractures on both sides of his chest and a collapsed lung on the right side. The injuries were suffered over two weeks. It is uncertain how much time he might miss. That’s according to ESPN’s Ed Werder.

Yesterday, Brees suffered two fractured ribs Sunday against the 49ers and three others on the right side the previous week against the Bucs that were not seen on X-ray until today.

Brees has been advised to be cautious with the collapsed lung.
