Wide receiver Steve Breaston has had arthroscopic surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee (first reported by XTRA’s Mike Jurecki). The Cards are unsure of exactly what Breaston’s return time frame will be, but it isn’t believed to be extensive. Not to compare the surgery of Breaston and Beanie Wells — who also had a meniscus repair — but Beanie missed two games and the Cards do have a bye week after the next two games in San Diego and home against New Orleans.
Obviously, not the best news. Breaston was hobbled a bit in the locker room yesterday but that was to be expected after he was banged up in Atlanta and then played against Oakland. Apparently, it was a little more than being banged up.
With WR Early Doucet still out, that certainly thins an already-thin receiving corps. The Cards did re-sign Onrea Jones yesterday, but even with all his back and forth with the roster, he has yet to play a regular-season game. I’d guess this puts Stephen Williams as the No. 2 and Max Komar as the No. 3, and I was told Andre Roberts had a great week of practice on offense last week. That’s a lot of rookies for the trip to San Diego.
