But after further review they can now rest easy, because Delvin Breaux said he will be back in action, not this week, but the next.
"It happened on a kickoff return," said the New Orleans-McDonough 35 standout. "I had broken my shin last
year and the doctor said I just received a blow on that exact spot. He said it's just a deep, deep bruise."
Breaux said he is excited about returning to the playing field and is looking forward to a certain match up.
"I'm definitely coming back for the Rummel game," said Breaux. "Right now I'm doing a lot of rehab. I'm doing ball exercises where I roll my ankle around on it. I'm doing rubber band exercises where I have to stretch it out. I'm also doing lunges to help me put pressure on it and walk on it."

So far, other than the injury, Breaux's season has gone well. He said he hasn't had any interceptions yet this season, because no body throws his way.
"It seems like all of the action goes to the other side of the field," he said. "So, I just do my job and if they come my way then I will be ready."
Note: School is also going well for Breaux as he said he is maintaining a 3.0. He said he plans to take the ACT in September.
