  • Report: Delvin Breaux's injury more than contusion

That, combined with a history of nagging injuries, recently prompted the Saints to consider trading him, the New Orleans Advocate reported Monday.

Saints cornerback Delvin Breaux's injury is more serious than a contusion, according to Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Breaux will require surgery and is expected to be sidelined for four to six weeks.

It's the last thing the New Orleans Saints needed. There is already some interest from other teams around the league.

Payton did admit that he initially pushed Breaux to get back on the field when the initial diagnosis was a contusion. "We stand behind our strong Sports Medicine Program, including Dr. Jones and Dr. Suri and a team made up of nationally recognized orthopedic surgeons who are fellowship trained in sports medicine". The 27-year-old wound up playing just six games because of leg and shoulder injuries and finished with 21 tackles. We understand that the intense pressure a professional sports team is under at the start of a new season, can cause unexpected changes.

"Coach talked to the team last night, and we were kind of asked to keep that conversation private", Saints union rep Thomas Morstead said. Jones and Suri have historically provided. "In addition, Dr. Suri will still remain as the Pelican's physician, and Ochsner Health System will remain an official sponsor of both the New Orleans Saints and the New Orleans Pelicans".

Payton told reporters that the team will work with the Los Angeles Chargers' team orthopedists for the remainder of the week because the clubs are scheduled for joint practices.
