Payton: Drew Brees to have surgery on right hand

Payton: Drew Brees to have surgery on right hand SEATTLE — New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton says quarterback Drew Brees will undergo surgery on his injured right thumb Wednesday afternoon. Payton said he has no timetable for Brees' return, but said he has no immediate plans to put Brees on injured reserve. He declined to name a starter for the Saints game at the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Teddy Bridgewater entered last Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Rams after Brees injured a ligament near the thumb on his throwing hand while attempting a pass. Brees was unable to grip a football without pain on the sideline after the play. Payton said the surgery will take place in Los Angeles.

Neil Patrick Harris is recovering from an injury he got nearly two months ago while he and his family were on vacation in Europe.

“Had surgery today,” the How I Met Your Mother star revealed on his Instagram on Tuesday.

“I tripped and hand planted onto a sea urchin almost two months ago while climbing rocky cliffs in Croatia,” he explained.

“Most of the tiny spines I dug out myself, but two refused to leave and one got infected,” the 46-year-old actor continued. “Turns out it pierced through a tendon (see ultrasound video). Well, thanks to the surgical talents of Dr. Dan Polatsch and his team, I’m officially urchin free and on the mend.”

  Actor Steve Martin to auction Lawren Harris' 'Mountain Sketch LXX' TORONTO — A painting by Lawren Harris will hit the Toronto auction block this fall after being consigned by a famous fan of the Group of Seven artist's work — comic legend Steve Martin. The Heffel Fine Art Auction House says Harris' "Mountain Sketch LXX" could fetch between $300,000 and $500,000 at its sale next month. The 1928 oil-on-board is one of several Harris works collected by Martin, who has helped raise the Canadian painter'sThe Heffel Fine Art Auction House says Harris' "Mountain Sketch LXX" could fetch between $300,000 and $500,000 at its sale next month.

Unfortunately, being “on the mend” includes a massive “hand elevating contraption” that Harris has to wear on his injured hand “for the foreseeable future.”

But, the father of two is choosing to stay positive… and might be ordering some sushi while he recovers: “All in all, though, I have to say: uni is still delicious,” he added.

Several of Harris’ famous pals commented their well wishes on the post — and some couldn’t help but make a few puns along the way.

“You should have gone to Urchin Care,” wrote Broadway actress Kate Jennings Grant in the comments.

Filmmaker failures led to death of Deadpool 2 stuntwoman: Worksafe B.C. report

  Filmmaker failures led to death of Deadpool 2 stuntwoman: Worksafe B.C. report Worksafe B.C. says multiple safety violations contributed to the death of stuntwoman Joi Harris during the filming of Deadpool 2. Harris was killed on Aug. 14, 2017, while performing a stunt at Jack Poole Plaza in Downtown Vancouver. Harris was ejected from her motorcycle — a Ducati Hyperstrada 939 — and crashed into a plate-glass window at the Shaw Tower. The Brooklyn, N.Y., woman was performing a stunt for Domino, a character in the Marvel sequel played by actor Zazie Beetz. In its incident investigation report, Worksafe B.C. says TCF Vancouver Productions Ltd..

Actor Breckin Meyer suggested that Harris was just trying to get out of some cooking duties, commenting, “You will do ANYTHING to avoid making those Reese’s rice krispy treats! And I spoke to the Urchin…he has a very different version.” Last month, Harris shared a post of his son ogling over some Reese’s rice krispy treats that his husband David Burtka made, which Meyer could have been referencing.

Burtka also commented on the post, writing, “Nice package!!” ostensibly referring to the “hand elevating contraption.”

This summer, Harris, Burtka, and their 9-year-old twins Gideon and Harper took a European vacation that included stops in France, Italy and Croatia. In August, Harris shared a post from the Croatia portion of the trip taking a daring plunge into the Adriatic Sea.

In the video, Harris addressed the camera, saying, “Okay, it’s Neil. I’m in Croatia, I’m on the top of a boat. And I’m going to dive in, slow-mo style.” As Harris makes the video, Burtka and the kids can be heard in the background shouting, “what up?!”
