An undrafted free agent out of Illinois State in 2015 Meredith flourished in his second season with the Bears, catching four touchdowns with almost 900 yards receiving. Linebacker Wesley Woodyard came to finish off the tackle and Meredith's leg planted and bent in a way you never want it to bend.

The Bears quickly announced that he was out for the game with a knee injury.

The Chicago Bears will be without their No.1 receiver this season - and perhaps beyond.

The Bears ruled Meredith out for the game being played in Nashville, Tenn.

The attack showing a group of white men beating a black man with poles and kicking him was captured on video and surfaced online. Harris left the rally with eight stitches in his head, lacerations, a broken wrist and a chipped tooth from the brutal assault.

On the other hand, the Bears now have a lot of opportunity available at the position.

After catching 66 passes for 888 yards and four touchdowns last season, Meredith entered the season as the clear number one receiver on the Bears' roster. Former first-round pick Kevin White, who has shown very little in two seasons, could get a bigger role.

The Chicago Bears preseason game against the Tennessee Titans proved to be extremely costly.

However, prior to going down with the aforementioned knee injury on Sunday afternoon, Meredith was in line to serve as the Bears' No. 1 wide receiver heading into the upcoming 2017 campaign.
