Drew Brees started the week with just five fractured ribs after he was hurt during Sunday's win over the 49ers. The total number of fractures had grown to 11 by Saturday.
In other words Brees is just one big fractured rib at this point. He obviously won't be playing this weekend, Taysom Hill gets his first NFL start at quarterback in his place.
Brees had X-rays, CAT scans and has been seen by doctors every other day this week. They have now confirmed eight rib fractures on his left side and three on the right. That’s more than double the total from testing performed on Monday that revealed five rib fractures.

This is another sign that father time has not only caught up to Brees, but is kicking his ass. He's cracking like an egg days after the play, that can't be a good sign.
