Saints lose Chase Daniel to broken thumb
It’s a good thing the Saints are almost finished with their on-field work until training camp, because they’re quickly running out of quarterbacks.
Saints coach Joe Vitt said Wednesday that backup Chase Daniel will be out until training camp, after suffering a sprained thumb and a hairline fracture, per Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Vitt said Daniel suffered the injury when he hit his thumb on a helmet.
The Saints have already had their minicamp, and have just one more scheduled day of OTAs, so there shouldn’t be a panic.
Still, the only healthy passers on the roster are the recently signed Luke McCown and Sean Canfield.
If nothing else, that should serve as a subliminal message to get going on signing a quarterback.
I remember hearing they were close on one last week. Wonder what happened to that Drew Brees guy?
