SEATTLE (AP) SEATTLE (AP) -- New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is having surgery on his injured right thumb this afternoon. Coach Sean Payton said he has no timetable for Brees' return, but said he has no immediate plans to put Brees on injured reserve. Teddy Bridgewater entered last Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Rams after Brees injured a ligament near the thumb on his throwing hand while attempting a pass.
