Chargers, In playoffs via sponsor's exemption, must do so without Brees.



Brees has dislocated shoulder, may need surgery

SAN DIEGO -- San Diego Chargers quarterback Drew Brees has a dislocated right shoulder, coach Marty Schottenheimer said after the Chargers' 23-7 loss to the Denver Broncos on Saturday.

Schottenheimer said Brees will undergo tests on his labrum and might need surgery.

Brees dropped back to pass from his end zone late in the second quarter and was blindsided on a blitz by safety John Lynch. Brees fumbled and was hit again while going for the ball, which was recovered by Denver's Sam Brandon at the 1-yard line. Tatum Bell scored on the next play to give the Broncos a 14-0 lead.

Brees was examined on the sideline, then was taken to the locker room. He was replaced by Philip Rivers, who finished the game for the Chargers.

Brees left immediately after the game and did not talk to reporters.

Although the Chargers already had been eliminated from the playoffs, coach Marty Schottenheimer didn't plan to use Rivers, a second-year pro, unless Brees got hurt.

Rivers had been in for one play this season, taking a knee to end a 48-10 win over Buffalo on Nov. 20.

Rivers played in two games as a rookie in 2004. The No. 4 pick in the 2004 draft, he was obtained from the New York Giants along with a handful of picks for Eli Manning.

They were lucky; the sponsors nearly selected Michelle Wie.

I actually feel sorry for Brees. He seems like a ok guy, and it sucks for him that he's in a contract year and now suffers such a major injury on his throwing shoulder. He is one tough guy, I had that same injury caused by similar motion/trauma, and I was in MAJOR pain.

It will be interesting to see what the chargers do with Rivers/Brees now.
