    <font size="-1" face="verdana, arial, geneva, san-serif" class="body3">Chargers quarterback Drew Brees had some advice Thursday for fans that scour the internet: "Don't believe everything you read."

    Three weeks ago, the Chargers starting signal caller underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder."  Despite a report that circled midweek, the rehabilitation process is going very well.

    "I'm feeling pretty good," Brees said."  "I'm three weeks post-op."  Right now, I'm at the point where people usually are after six weeks."  I'm about three weeks ahead of schedule."

    </font><font></font>Brees has remained in Birmingham, Alabama where the former Purdue Boilermaker's surgery was performed."  Brees goes through two rehab sessions each day with each session lasting about two and a half hours.

    "It's a lot of range of motion," Brees said."  "I'm doing some strengthening exercises and stability."  For the most part, it's simple because there is a healing element involved."  I have to let the surgical procedure heal."  That takes a while."

    Approximately one week ago, Brees shed his sling and began using his right arm for routine tasks."  Prior to the operation, Brees said that he hoped to be throwing a football by May."  He's still hopeful that he'll meet that date.

    Brees is set to return to San Diego this weekend where he will continue the rehab process.

    "It's tough, but I'm working hard and pushing through," Brees said."  "I'm going to do whatever it takes to get healthy enough to help the Chargers win football games."  That's been the goal all along and I'm happy that things are moving along well."
