NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - Drew Brees will have surgery on his injured thumb tomorrow in Los Angeles. That’s according to ESPN reporter Ed Werder.

A source tells Werder the timetable for his return won’t be known until surgery is complete.

“I’m confident in the surgery that will take place and will dedicate myself to the rehab process to get back as quickly as I can," said Drew Brees to Werder.
