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.

Earlier in the day, the Saints said the wide receiver had to have his right knee
examined for a potential medial meniscus problem after he missed practices Sunday
and Monday.

Head coach Sean Payton said after Monday's practice that the Saints knew about a
possible minor meniscus problem before they drafted the former standout receiver
out of Tennessee with the 27th pick overall.

"We backed him off yesterday and the same way this morning," Payton said.

Meachem also missed portions of rookie camp the weekend after the draft when he
sprained his left ankle.

Well at least the Saints knew he had a knee problem, thats cool. Hopefully the surgery goes well and he has a good career.
