METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

Saints Head Coach Sean Payton revealed Monday that cornerback Delvin Breaux will miss six weeks with a broken fibula.

"He had a procedure done this morning. He’ll be able to make a full recovery and be back with us this season and play," said Payton.

Breaux left the field with five minutes remaining in the third quarter. Undrafted rookie Ken Crawley filled in for Breaux the rest of the game. Crawley was covering Michael Crabtree on the Raiders successful two-point conversion putting the Raiders ahead 35-34.
