Saints WR Adrian Arrington to have his knee injury evaluated

Once a promising prospect, New Orleans Saints WR Adrian Arrington has reportedly met with renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews to have his knee injury (meniscus) evaluated. This is yet another in a long series of setbacks for Arrington who has battled a laundry list injuries ever since he signed with the Saints back in 2008. The departure of WR Robert Meachem (San Diego Chargers) opened up the WR4 role in New Orleans and Arrington was a leading candidate to step up.

Fantasy Analysis:

If a procedure is needed, the difference between a scope and full-blown surgery is drastic. A simple scope could have Arrington back relatively early in the season. A deeper more complicated cut could end his season and possibly his career. Rookie Saints WR Nick Toon @Nick2oon is next in line but a reoccurring foot injury is hampering his progress as he sat out the Hall of Fame Game last weekend. That leaves something on the table for players like WR Joseph Morgan @jmthegreat or WR Andy Tanner as they battle for active rosters spots.

While this injury doesn't have any affect on QB Drew Brees @drewbrees, someone will have to step up and catch the 55 or so passes normally reserved for the WR4 in New Orleans. RB Darren Sproles @DarrenSproles may be the player to see additional targets if this minor hole doesn't get plugged by a quality receiver. WR Devery Henderson could also get a minor bump here. While it's still early in the preseason (the Saints battle the Patriots in Week 1 action tonight) don't be late joining the New Orleans fantasy bandwagon during your 2012 Draft Day celebrations.
