New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has a torn plantar fascia in his right foot, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder.

Despite the injury, Brees hopes to continue playing in the Saints’ final two games of the regular season, the source said, but the injury complicates his ability to throw because he throws off that right foot.

According to the source, an MRI was sent to Dr. Robert Anderson, the Charlotte specialist who treated Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning for a similar injury.

The Saints have a short week of preparation before their next game. Brees plans to aggressively treat the injury and hopes to play this Sunday at home against the Jaguars, the source said, but he is expected to be listed as day-to-day.

If Brees can’t play, the Saints will have to decide whether to start veteran backup Matt Flynn or rookie Garrett Grayson.
