The Saints probably won’t be able to trade cornerback Delvin Breaux anytime soon.

But they do have a couple of vacancies as a result of the cornerback’s inability to stay on the field.

According to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com, the Saints have fired a pair of team orthopedists after it was discovered that Breaux has a fractured fibula, and will need surgery which is expected to cost him four to six weeks.

Breaux has been out of training camp practices with what has been termed a “leg contusion,” but apparently it was much worse than that, and team doctors Deryk Jones and Misty Suri missed the diagnosis.
