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.

Fitz still had injury issues that year so he didn't completely kiss the curse

we already know about the madden curse, dude.  it'll live on, no need to beat a dead horse.  This is the only reason why I didn't take brees on any of my fantasy teams.  Nope took rivers all in the 6th or 7th pick after I had my 3 wrs and 2 rbs...sweet!!

Report: Brees has fracture, torn meniscus in knee

Kenny Wilkerson is a complete IDIOT for making this report. All he is doing is wakeing up all the defenses that the Saints will face and now they will try to take him out by hitting him low. He obviously is not a Saints fan. BS story. Sean Peyton even says so.

Report: Brees has fracture, torn meniscus in knee

There is a reason Kenny Wilkerson went from a 100,000 watt station to one  that is about 10 watts.  You can pick the station up if you are in the same block.  This guy is an idiot.

Kenny Wilkerson is an idiot.  Even if he's correct about this.  He's already been fired from one station for reporting stuff about the Saints when he shouldn't have.  Get a grip, Kenny.

Report: Brees has fracture, torn meniscus in knee

Brees practiced fully in team drills today without a knee brace. He was also reportedly kicking field goals. They would not allow him to joke around kicking field goals if he had a fracture and torn meniscus!! He is fully healthy. Kenny Wilkerson will be fired from WIST radio just as he was fired from WWL a few years back. I dont get what his motive is. UNREAL!

Report: Brees has fracture, torn meniscus in knee

Vick, Faulk, Eddie George, Ray Lewis, McNabb, Shawn Alexander, Culpepper, Farve (The Jets went down in flames over his bum arm), V. Young, Polamalu, Bres. Only Fitz made it. Yell MADDEN CURSE is real. Tomlinson turned EA down because of it. Culpepper said it was his greatest honor and then it ended his career. If I was a pro, I would no way let them put my face on that thing. The last year Madden himself was on it he broke his leg.
