Payton talks about Meachem's injury

The Saints say Robert Meachem's knee surgery, in early June, was not as serious and expect him to be ready for the start of training camp in late July. Saints coach Sean Payton talked opening about the injury.

The Saints say this surgery was not as serious and expect him to be ready for the start of training camp in late July.

"It's something that we felt like we could have managed and at the same time, just with the soreness he had, we thought it was better to quickly go in and clean it up," Payton said of Meachem. "It's something that, when his rehabilitation is over, won't be a lingering issue," Payton continued. "It will be something that can be 100 percent and cleaned up. We just felt better about the time frame for rehabilitation in four to six weeks, rather than going through this camp, and risk missing the start of training camp."
