Saints coach Payton: Brees is day-to-day with foot injury
METAIRIE - Saints coach Sean Payton says it remains unclear whether quarterback Drew Brees will play in Sunday's home finale against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Brees injured his right foot in Monday night's loss to Detroit, but never missed a snap.
Payton says Brees has had an MRI and is awaiting a second opinion from another doctor before deciding how to move forward. The Saints, who've been eliminated from playoff contention, did not practice on Tuesday and did not have a practice scheduled Wednesday.
Brees is scheduled to meet with reporters Thursday afternoon.
If Brees cannot play, the Saints' backups are veteran Matt Flynn and rookie Garrett Grayson.
Brees passed for 341 yards and three touchdowns Monday night, eclipsing 4,000 yards for a 10th straight season.
