Steve Breaston Undergoes Surgery, Rookie Stephen Williams Is Likely Replacement

NBCSports is reporting that Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Steve Breaston “will miss at least the next couple of weeks” after having a torn meniscus in his knee repaired on Tuesday.
Breaston first appeared as “questionable” on the team’s Week 3 injury report, citing a knee injury. He played through the injury on Sunday against the Raiders, catching four passes for 41 yards and his first touchdown of the season.
Though he is second on the team with just 20 targets, Breaston currently leads the Cardinals in both receptions (14) and yards (183). In comparison, star teammate Larry Fitzgerald has been targeted 35 times, but made just 12 catches for 152 yards.
With no set timetable on Breaston’s return being established at this time and fellow receiver Early Doucet on the sidelines until at least mid-October, the Cardinals will likely turn to undrafted rookie wide receiver Stephen Williams to pick up the slack while Breaston is out.
