Saints' Delvin Breaux out for 6 weeks with broken fibula
NEW ORLEANS – Delvin Breaux, New Orleans Saints cornerback, broke his fibula during Sunday's 35-34 loss to the Raiders.
Coach Sean Payton said that Breaux had surgery Monday morning to repair his fractured fibula. Payton said that he is expected to be out for six weeks.
Breaux was injured during the second quarter of the game. He played again after halftime, but was then carted off to the locker room after he was helped off the field.
Breaux tweeted Sunday afternoon to his fans thanking them for their support and said that he will return stronger.
