Drew Brees Has Torn Ligament In Foot

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees injured his right foot Monday night and we now know the extent of the injury. Per ESPN's Ed Werder, Brees has a torn plantar fascia, a ligament, in his foot. 

Brees had a visible limp and struggled to follow through on his throws Monday night because of the injury. He played through the injury and completed 34 of 52 passes for 341 yards, 3 TDs and no picks in the team's loss. 

It's the same injury that Peyton Manning has. Manning has not played in a month, but there's a chance Brees could finish out the season. He's completed 67.6 percent of his passes for 4,135 yards, 28 TDs and 11 picks this year.  

With the Saints out of playoff contention, they might elect to sit Brees and get him healthy for next year. However, Brees wants to play in the team's final two games. 

The Saints have Garrett Grayson and Matt Flynn on the roster. Grayson is just a rookie and might not be ready to play. But with the season over, the team could elect to give him a look.
