    QB Drew Brees has dislocated shoulder, may need surgery!!

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2276464


    SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- San Diego Chargers quarterback Drew Brees has a dislocated right shoulder, coach Marty Schottenheimer said after the Chargers' 23-7 loss to the Denver Broncos on Saturday.


    Schottenheimer said Brees will undergo tests on his labrum and might need surgery.

    Brees dropped back to pass from his end zone late in the second quarter and was blindsided on a blitz by safety John Lynch. Brees fumbled and was hit again while going for the ball, which was recovered by Denver's Sam Brandon at the 1-yard line. Tatum Bell scored on the next play to give the Broncos a 14-0 lead.


    Brees was examined on the sideline, then was taken to the locker room. He was replaced by Philip Rivers, who finished the game for the Chargers.


    Brees left immediately after the game and did not talk to reporters.


    Although the Chargers already had been eliminated from the playoffs, coach Marty Schottenheimer didn't plan to use Rivers, a second-year pro, unless Brees got hurt.

    Did you see that injury happen!?!

    It looked like it was very very very painful!

    Very weird that schottenheimer said he didnt want/plan to use rivers, he didnt look good either!

    Yeah look like his shoulder turned the wrong way(Up and out) when they landed on him but atleast he showed effort to get the football.

    I wonder if he will get resigned now that they know he might not be able to throw with the same amount of power he onced used before the injury

    Saw it happen and now turn my head for the replays, looked terrible, hope he can make it back from that injury.

    Rivers trade value certainly dropped, Schottenheimer may have to keep him and he carries so much $$$ against the cap.

    Talk about one game changing the future for next year, wonder if Marty is concidering retirement now
