Bears receiver Cameron Meredith carted off with injured knee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Chicago wide receiver Cameron Meredith has been carted off the field after hurting his left knee late in the first quarter against the Tennessee Titans.

Meredith made a 16-yard catch Sunday when he was hit by Titans cornerback Logan Ryan and safety Johnathan Cyprien. Meredith's left foot appeared to catch in the grass when hit in the leg by Cyprien, and the receiver immediately went down.

Trainers put a brace on Meredith's leg before lifting him onto a cart that took him off the field.

Meredith led the Bears with 66 catches for 888 yards last season and tied for the team-high with four touchdown receptions.

The Bears say long snapper Patrick Scales also is out with an injured knee.
