Saints lose wide receiver Cameron Meredith to knee surgery

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Cameron Meredith is being placed on injured reserve and will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery, sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The IR move could partially explain the Saints' decision to sign wide receiver Dez Bryant on Wednesday.

Meredith is expected to make a full recovery, sources said.

Meredith, 26, had been healthy for most of this season. But his knee was obviously a big enough concern this past offseason for the Chicago Bears to let him get away as a restricted free agent.

Meredith missed the entire 2017 season in Chicago after tearing his left ACL and suffering other knee ligament damage during the preseason. The Saints then signed him to a two-year, $10 million offer sheet in April, and the Bears declined to match it.
