4:30 pm – According to Mike Jurecki of XTRA 910 Sports, Breaston could be back with the team on the field after the Cardinals BYE in week seven.

4:15 pm – Arizona’s receiving corps was once thought of as the deepest and best in the league, but after receiving the news that Steve Breaston will be out indefinitely following knee surgery earlier today, the Cardinals are struggling to find enough players capable of performing well in the team’s pass heavy offense.

According to Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com, it’s expected that Arizona will use undrafted rookies Stephen Williams and Max Komar extensively in Breaston’s absence. Neither player has done much thus far, although both had fairly good pre-season performances and should be able to provide Cardinals quarterback Derek Anderson with enough targets to keep opponents from camping on All-Pro receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

Breaston reportedly had the surgery after he aggravated his partially torn meniscus during the Cardinals win over the visiting Raiders last Sunday. He is not likely to miss enough time to warrant placement on the injured reserve list, but given the production he’s had throughout his career, any time missed will be painful for Arizona’s offense.
