Did he or didn’t he?

Did New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees suffer significant damage to his left knee in a Week 3 overtime loss to the Atlanta Falcons at the Superdome?

According to Saints fullback Heath Evans, Brees played “six weeks with a torn MCL’’ in his left knee, referring to a medial collateral ligament.
