Drew Brees thinks there is a 'reasonable possibility' he can play Sunday against Carolina, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.

The report said Brees went to see Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion on his shoulder and that Brees was told to rehab hard. His response to the treatment will determine his playing status.

It was not the most vicious hit by NFL standards, but Brees was visibly in pain after a sack in the second quarter of Sunday's game. 

"He was coming forward with his arm. Smith hooked him from behind sort of from his blind side and then arm seems to stop very abruptly. And when he did, it probably put a lot of torque on that shoulder," FOX 8 Saints analyst Jim Henderson said.  

FOX 8 Saints analyst Jim Henderson winced with Brees as the MVP came up favoring his throwing arm against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

"I think our chances of being a competitive football team without him are very slim," he said.
