Robert Meachem undergoes toe surgery

R. Meachem.jpgThe potential encore to Saints wideout Robert Meachem’s breakout season just hit a detour.

The fourth-year pro underwent sugery to repair torn cartilage on the second toe of his left foot, according to Brian Allee-Walsh of NewOrleans.com.  The injury will knock him out until training camp at the earliest.

“It’s good that we caught it now,” coach Sean Payton said.

The Saints have plenty of depth at wide receiver, with Devery Henderson back in a similar vertical role to Meachem.  Lance Moore is the team’s fourth receiver.

    Perhaps a Vicadin will ease the pain

    Im counting down the days until the Vikes get another crack at the saints. Hey Aints fans what is your team gonna do when the vikes get 500+ yards of offense to the saints measly 250 and don’t turn the ball over 5 times? Nothing thats what. The vikings will dominate. The only thing better than last years trophy is this years trophy…… and we want it!

    Has Jerry Jones got a new “leather” face yet?/

  8. AlanWeiss says: May 10, 2010 9:59 PM

    I guess by “break out” year, you refer to the fact that he played in all 16 games.

    When it’s healed he’ll be able to hold on to Bree’s passes better.

    smitty gill….that would take every pair of lips in Philly to get that accomplished

    @halestorm74: Funny how you call us the Aint’s when there’s a Lombardi residing in New Orleans. How many Lombardi’s are there in either of the twin cities? Just curious.
    Re your comment on the yards….at the end of the day the only tally that matters is what’s on the scoreboard. Yards don’t mean anything. Vikes could get 1000 yards but if they don’t break the plane or get a field goal doesn’t mean anything. You know that.

    I guess by breakout year you mean 9 receiving TDs plus one badass play against the ‘Skins for good measure.

    Wow, the stupidity and ignorance displayed among the Saints detractors is simply breathtaking.
    Ahem. Robert Meachem led the Saints in touchdowns with 10 – 9 offensive and 1 defensive.
    Ahem. Robert Meachem had exactly one fumble all of last year. Get a clue detractors!
    Ahem. Vicodin jokes are so 5 minutes ago. Get a life you boobs! (plus please learn how to spell cretins).

    If by “Aints” you meant we AINT gonna lose the Super Bowl, you are right. Im willing to strike a deal with these Queen fans: Seeing that your team is going to sacked and and sailed off to LA, we can get a lottery together to take in a few to become a Saints fan prospect. It will be a similar one to the one the Vikes used to save their team from moving, seeing only 28 people bought them, your odds will be good to win!!

    @halestorm74:
    What “Vikes” are you speaking of?
    Minnesota Vikings or Vicodin ES? You need to be clearer when referring to the Saints and Vikes.
    Also, does anyone know the asking price for Vikes from Sean Payton? If $3 or less, I would like to make contact with him. lol

    He should get his foot checked out by O.J. McDuffie’s doc.

    News flash. New report Brett Favre stole Vicodin from the Saints locker room after getting his ass kick in the NFC chaminship game last season. LOL

    @Dan Rooney.
    No, actually I don’t really care about the Steelers one way or another.

    I would expect somebody that is scared of the insults being hurled to call shots about Vicodin “5 minutes ago”… the truth is, the Vicodin jokes haven’t yet begun because this mess isn’t going away anytime soon, it’ll only get worse.
    Then you made a really stupid (and ironic) mistake, you called somebody out about their spelling “Vicodin jokes are so 5 minutes ago. Get a life you boobs! (plus please learn how to spell cretins).” Have you ever heard of punctuation? There is this cool little thing, called a comma… and if you use it, it does magical things. Like when you said, “learn how to spell cretins” What you really asked there, was for people to learn how to spell the word “cretins” instead of what we assume you meant, which was, “learn how to spell, cretins”… there’s a big difference… but if you want to start picking out spelling mistakes, why stop there? Grammar and punctuation are important, too.
