Cameron Meredith believed to have torn ACL

Long Unrein Among Bears Out for Sunday vs. Titans

Long Unrein Among Bears Out for Sunday vs. Titans

The Chicago Bears will be without their No.1 receiver this season - and perhaps beyond. The injury, which should be confirmed within the next 24 hours, will obviously knock Meredith out for the remainder of 2017. Surgery will be required, at least for the ACL.

Trainers put a brace on Meredith's leg before lifting him onto a cart that took him off the field. On rare occasions, there is artery and nerve involvement, as this is essentially a partial knee dislocation.

Per Pam Oliver of FOX Sports, the Bears believe Meredith suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's game at Tennessee.

An undrafted free agent out of Illinois State in 2015 Meredith flourished in his second season with the Bears, catching four touchdowns with almost 900 yards receiving. He had two catches for 44 yards before being hurt on Sunday and had two catches for 26 yards in the team's previous game. The Bears also have the likes of Kevin White, Victor Cruz, Markus Wheaton and Kendall Wright - among others - along the outside as wide receiver options.
