D. Brees
Kenny Wilkerson of WIST-AM radio is reporting that the New Orleans Saints are hiding a significant injury to Drew Brees. Wilkerson says Brees has a fracture and torn meniscus in his left knee. 

Brees suffered what was described as a mild knee sprain early in the season. He’s been wearing a brace but has not missed any action.

Wilkerson says his source is “impeccable” and that his report is “100 thousand-trillion-million percent” accurate. He even went so far as to suggest that Brees will need Microfracture surgery after the season. (Though this has to be considered mere speculation at this point.)

Brees has been a tad inconsistent at times this season (he leads the league with 11 interceptions), though no one has suggested that he looks like his knee is bothering him. With this rumor now swirling, you can expect that will change. 

UPDATE 3:00 pm ET:
Props to our Saints Rapid Reporter Larry Holder for passing this along:

Coach Sean Payton called the report of Drew Brees having a fracture and torn meniscus in his left knee "inaccurate." "It's not right," Payton said. "Completely. False. This week, he's without the brace, sleeve or anything." A league source also said Brees laughed when he heard the report.

If the source is “100 thousand-trillion-million percent” accurate and the "media" is reporting it then it has to be true.  Don't NFL rules dictate that all injuries be reported?  It has a great impact on legal betting.
