Drew Brees has a torn plantar fascia in his right foot but he intends to finish out the remaining two weeks of the season.
According to the source, an MRI was sent to Dr. Robert Anderson, the Charlotte specialist who treated Peyton Manning for a similar injury.
Anderson has not yet made a recommendation to Brees, who is believed to be considering several different treatment protocols, the source said.
Brees was hurt during the second quarter of the Saints' loss on Monday.
