New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald were both sidelined with injuries during Sunday’s game.
Brees appeared to suffer a thumb injury when he took a blow to his throwing hand in contact with Donald during the first quarter.
He had his hand taped and watched on from the sidelines as Teddy Bridgewater took over against the Rams, although the Saints were yet to issue an official update on Brees.
Rams star Donald, having been involved in that incident, later disappeared down the tunnel with a back complaint.
The two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year was then listed as questionable to return by Los Angeles.
Injury update: Aaron Donald is questionable to return with a back injury.
