New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has reached yet another significant career milestone. The 37-year-old passed Dan Marino on the all-time passing yards list on Sunday against the New York Giants. Brees entered Week 2 needing 36 yards to pass Marino’s mark of 61,361 yards.
Brees and the Saints got Lance Alworth Jersey out to a slow start against the New York Giants, with Brees needing four drives to actually reach 36 yards, but he did it. The pass that put him over was an 8-yard pass to tight end Coby Fleener.
The Browns announced McCown’s return to the game was questionable with the shoulder injury, but McCown jogged back out of the locker room and when the Browns came up on offense, he resumed play. The injury to his left shoulder is his non-throwing shoulder.
McCown is the second starter for Cleveland this season, as Robert Griffin III was awarded the starting role in the preseason. But Griffin was hurt in the team’s opener and McCown, a starter last season, was given the job. McCown was playing well when he went down with the injury, completing 5 of 7 passes for 92 yards and two touchdowns, both of which went to first-round pick Corey Coleman.
Kessler, 23, was a third-round pick in this year’s draft and is the only other quarterback on the roster. Kessler may not be ready to play at all, as Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Kessler is “not close to being ready to play” earlier in the week.
Sam Shields: When Sam Bradford Malcom Floyd Jersey makes his Vikings debut Sunday night, he’ll face a Packers defense that’s missing its No. 1 cornerback. Shields was ruled out with a concussion after being listed as doubtful on Friday’s injury report. The blow came on a seemingly routine play against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week and is the fifth documented concussion Shields has suffered in his career. With him out of the lineup, the Packers will be forced to rely on three second-year players at corner: Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins and LaDarius LaDarius Gunter.
