The New Orleans Saints have made room on their 53-man roster for Dez Bryant.

Meredith, who missed all of 2017 with a torn ACL, signed two-year $9.6 million deal with the Saints during the offseason.

The 26-year old Meredith, who now has to miss at least 8 weeks of action, will undergo arthropscopic surgery, and is expected to make a full recovery.

This season, Meredith has caught 9 passes for 114 yards and one touchdown.

Bryant, who will add some depth to the receiver position, one that has Ted Ginn, Cameron Meredith, and Tommylee Lewis now all on injured reserve, is expected to officially sign a one-year deal with the Saints on Thursday.
