"In addition, Dr. Suri will still remain as the Pelican's physician, and Ochsner Health System will remain an official sponsor of both the New Orleans Saints and the New Orleans Pelicans".

Breaux's injury was initially ruled a contusion and after reports surfaced Monday that the team was exhausted of the cornerback's injuries and seeking a trade, the New Orleans native sought a second opinion.

Breaux will require surgery and is expected to be sidelined for four to six weeks. Jeff Duncan of the Times-Picayune said the Pelicans have been frustrated with their medical staff for almost a decade. "You're not going to bat 1.000 but you just hope, more often than not, you're getting the right information".

The separation became clearer Wednesday when a league source informed The Advocate that the Saints' decision to part ways with team doctor Misty Suri did not sever Suri's ties with the Pelicans. In a release sent to the Associated Press, Ochsner stated Suri is still with the Pelicans.

Payton said the team will work with the Chargers' team orthopedists for the rest of this week because they're flying to Los Angeles on Wednesday for joint practices with the team, followed by a preseason game on Sunday. The fracture is just below the plate from the broken fibula that Breaux suffered last season, according to the report.

The Saints are looking to move on from cornerback Delvin Breaux.

They thought Breaux had simply a contusion in his left leg, but it turns out that he has a fractured fibula.
