Cardinals WR Steve Breaston Has Knee Surgery

Mike Jurecki of XTRA Sports 910 reports that Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Steve Breaston underwent surgery to repair torn meniscus in one of his knees.

According to Jurecki, Breaston will miss the next couple of weeks. The Cardinals travel to the San Diego Chargers next week before hosting the New Orleans Saints. Arizona's bye week falls in Week 6.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that Breaston will be sidelined until the Cardinals' October 24th game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Elevated to a starting role with the off-season trade of Anquan Boldin, Breaston leads the Cardinals with 14 receptions for 183 yards this season.

A fifth-round pick out of Michigan in 2007, Breaston entered 2010 with 140 receptions for 1,810 yards and six touchdowns during his first three seasons in the league. Breaston started 15 games over the past two seasons, and topped 1,000 yards receiving (1,006) in 2008.

Breaston has also averaged 7.8 yards on 113 career punt returns, with one returned for a touchdown. Breaston has not been used in a return role this season.

With Breaston out, rookie wide receiver Stephen Williams will play an increased role in the Cardinals' passing attack.
