    Meachem to have arthroscopic surgery, out 3-4 Weeks.

    Saints first-round draft pick Robert Meachem will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his knee Tuesday morning and will be out 3-4 weeks, sources told ESPN.com's Matt Mosley on Monday.
    Thankfully this sounds like he'll be back in time for training camp, could've been potentially much worse. Looks like the Saints are going to be very cautious with this.

      Yeah, that's not too, too bad. *whew* Hopefully he'll be ready to go by training camp.
      The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

        He will not be 100% I gaurentee it. I tore my miniscus and it messed me up for a VERY long time, to the point where even now, if I don't remain active and sit around for a few weeks, then go out and play a couple games of basketball, my knee will swell until it is stiff later that night and early the next morning, it's fine a day later but that could really mess him up, since he'd be going a lot harder than I do in basketball.

          It's a shame that he's starting his NFL career so poorly. I had really high expectations for him this year

            1. They both run under 4.37.

            3. Greatest Hands Competition
            4. Injuries before season that could ultimatley keep him off the field
            Chad Jackson must have been a bum on the practice field when healthy, or the Pats just think he's a ***** because he is always hurt. Because their 2nd round pick from 2006 will have to beat out both playoff starters just to be a 4 or 5 receiver thanks to the free agency signings of Moss, Stallworth, and Welker. Last years two second round picks let injurys really screw their careers so shortly.

            Lesson: Meachem you better hope this injury doesn't linger.
            Coors cold hard facts: Adrian Peterson runs like a little girl. Brady Quinn can't throw on the run. Josh Wilson is going to be a star. CJ is perfect.

              Torry Holt had the very same injury. He was able to bounce back. There's a school of thought that says tearing the meniscus actually can benefit a player in that it gives him more flexibility. Now, of course, no one wants to see any guy get injured. But Meachem will be back in three or four weeks. I think he'll be fine.

                after having it torn, I don't know how anyone could literally say that.

                Yeah, I play WoW too.[/CENTER]

                  I agree...because after it is torn, everything becomes bone-on-bone. But I do not think that will be the case for Meachem. Sounds as if he just is having a piece cut out. But I have heard some people suggest that tearing the meniscus actually allows more flexibility in the knee.

                    This is probably the outcome of being out of shape. Not exactly a good way to begin your NFL career.

                      Not true. The condition was preexisting.

                        guess who he is compared to on the front page player comparison?

                        go figure.

                          "They repaired some meniscus and the procedure went real well," Payton said of Meachem's surgery. "The approach we've taken, and I mentioned this two days ago, was to be smart about it and it was something we felt like we could have managed it. At the same time, with the soreness he had, we felt it would be better to go in and clean it up. Coming away from that scope, the doctors felt real good about it.

                          "From a rehabilitation standpoint, the time frame we're looking at is real conducive to getting him back for camp so he doesn't miss any time at all."
                          Some info. on how the procedure went.
