Meredith had further tests done to confirm that diagnosis and the news didn’t get any better after the results came in. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Meredith does have a torn ACL and that he also suffered “other damage” to his knee that will require other tests.
This is an injury that looked bad from the beginning so it's not a shocking turn of events. Meredith was the team's leading WR last year. The hope for the Bears is White steps up and lives up to his first-round potential. As we said in an earlier story from today, Wheaton and Wright look to be next up on the Bears depth chart after White.
