Saints' Cameron Meredith: Knee scope linked to previous ACL tear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meredith, who was placed on injured reserve Thursday, will undergo arthroscopic procedure to clean address the persistent swelling he has endured in his surgically repaired left knee, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Coach Sean Payton said the Saints are optimistic the cleanup surgery will provide a permanent fix for the swelling Meredith has experienced in the same knee he tore during the 2017 preseason. That injury forced him to miss all of last season, with Meredith ultimately landing with the Saints after the Bears declined to match the two-year, $9.6 million deal New Orleans offered. While the first year of that deal proved to be a bust, the Saints are hopeful a healthy Meredith can serve as a quality complement to No. 1 wideout Michael Thomas in 2019. As for the remainder of this season, the Saints will turn to the newly signed Dez Bryant along with rookie Tre'Quan Smith and slot man Austin Carr to offer depth behind Thomas in the receiver ranks. Ted Ginn (knee) is also a candidate to return from IR later in the season to provide additional relief.

Saints' Cameron Meredith: Headed for IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meredith will be placed on injured reserve by the Saints and will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Meredith missed the entire 2017 season after tearing both his ACL and MCL in the preseason, and was inactive for the first two games of 2018, seemingly due to lingering effects. He had also been an afterthought in the offense of late, going without a catch (and under 20 snaps) in three consecutive games. Now there is a second narrative behind his lower usage, as well as additional context behind Wednesday's signing of free agent receiver Dez Bryant. Meredith is expected to recover in full, and should be available for the second year of his contract in 2019.

Saints' Cameron Meredith: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meredith (knee) didn't participate in practice Wednesday.

Meredith has failed to draw a target for three consecutive games, averaging just 13.3 offensive snaps during that stretch. With the Saints' addition of Dez Bryant on Wednesday, Meredith is a candidate to plunge further in the pecking order at receiver within an offense that revolves around Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara. Before he can figure out his new standing, though, Meredith will have to prove the health of his left knee.

Saints' Cameron Meredith: Plays only 13 snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meredith was not targeted in Sunday's win against the Rams.

This was the third week in a row that Meredith did not receive even a single target and he played just 13 of the Saints' 71 offensive snaps. With Tre'Quan Smith locked in as the team's No. 2 receiver and even Austin Carr (15 snaps) seeing more playing time than him, Meredith can probably be dropped in most formats.

Saints' Cameron Meredith: Full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meredith (knee) practiced fully Thursday.

In three opportunities to take advantage of Ted Ginn's (knee) placement on IR, Meredith has struck just one time (five catches for 71 yards Week 5 against the Redskins). Since the Saints returned from an ensuing bye, Meredith has been blanked in back-to-back games, going without a target both times. It's difficult to forecast much in the passing attack beyond No. 1 wideout Michael Thomas (shoulder) and the backfield duo of Alvin Kamara (illness) and Mark Ingram. Therefore, Meredith's viability is hanging by a thread as he continues to make regular appearances on the injury report.
