Teddy Bridgetter will be the starting quarterback for the New Orleans Saints for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN's Dianna Russini sources.
During the week, trainer Sean Peyton declined to name a starter, saying Bridgewater and dual – athlete of danger Tismas Hill would play quarterback. That is still an expectation, but Bridgewater will be the primary QB, Russini sources said.
Bridgewater replaces longtime Saints fourback Drew Brees, who on Wednesday underwent surgery on his right side (throwing) his thumb.
There is no official timetable for Brice's recovery, but league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that it could be canceled in about six weeks. The saint did not put Brace in a contagion reserve, which would require him to miss eight weeks.
