Saints quarterback Drew Brees predicts either Andrew Luck or Darren Sproles will win comeback player of the year. Luck’s shoulder injury has kept him out of game action since January 1 Dorian O'Daniel Color Rush Jersey , 2017, and Sproles tore an ACL and broke an arm in Week 3 last season.

“I’m calling it right now: It’s either [Luck] or Darren Sproles for NFL comeback player of the year,” Brees said on 1070 The Fan, via the Indianapolis Star. “I’m just calling it right now.”

Regarding Luck’s shoulder injury, Brees has been there, rehabbed that.

Brees tore the labrum in his right shoulder in a 2005 game while playing for the Chargers. It was billed as a career-threatening injury at the time.

Luck missed all of last season while rehabbing.

“I know it’s extremely difficult, any type of injury to the throwing arm http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-denzel-ward-jersey , especially what appears to be the extent of Andrew’s,” Brees said. “Obviously, that’s been a long road for him and a really tough road. But I think by all accounts Andrew, especially this offseason, has really worked his tail off to get back to where he’s going to be able to compete at a high level.”

Retired quarterback Brett Favre says he made three trips to rehabilitation centers during his Hall of Fame career to fight his dependence on painkillers and alcohol.

Favre told Sports Illustrated he took as many as 14 Vicodin at one time during the 1995 season in Green Bay. Favre won the first of his three consecutive Most Valuable Player awards that season.

”It is really amazing, as I think back, how well I played that year Authentic Ryan McLeod Jersey ,” Favre said. ”That was an MVP year for me. But that year, when I woke up in the morning, my first thought was, `I gotta get more pills.”’

Favre said his issues with pills caused him to spend 28 days at a center in Rayville, Louisiana, in the early 1990s. Favre also says he spent 28 days in rehab ”strictly for drinking” in 1998. The story also mentions a previously reported 72-day stint at a Kansas City rehab center in the mid-1990s to get off Vicodin.

”When I drank, I drank to excess Devan Dubnyk Jersey ,” Favre said. ”So when I went in the second time, to the place in Kansas, I remember vividly fighting them in there. They said drinking was the gateway drug for me, and they were right, absolutely right, but I wouldn’t admit it. I will never forget one of the nurses. I had it all figured out. I fought with this nurse all the time. I would not admit the drinking problem. At the end, she said to me Brandon Williams Jersey , `You’ll be back.’

”I was back. 1998. Guess who was waiting there when I walked in – that same nurse.”

The Packers, through a spokesman, declined comment. The front office and coaching staff has turned over several times over the last 20 years.

Favre played in the NFL from 1991-2010 and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.
