Drew Brees has a knee injury

According to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com,  Saints quarterback Drew Brees was limited during Wednesday’s practice with a knee injury.

The good news is that it doesn’t appear the injury is serious.

Brees was on the field during the individual drills that were open to the media at the start of Wednesday’s practice — and at the end of practice for his regular interview session. And there was no indication of an injury during last Sunday’s 17-13 loss to the Carolina Panthers — though Brees was sacked six times in the game.

Neither Brees nor coach Sean Payton mentioned the injury during post-practice interviews, which took place before the injury report was released. Brees talked as if he intends to play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
