Saints cornerback Jabari Greer left Sunday's game against the 49ers in the first quarter with a gruesome left knee injury. He was carted off the field after being evaluated by the training staff. It was initially unclear what kind of injury he sustained.
While attempting to make a play on a high throw, Greer landed awkwardly. His knee bent inwards in a way it shouldn't, which forced the 10-year veteran down to the turf. He immediately grabbed at his knee and remained down on the field for five minutes before being helped off.
Greer appeared to be in good spirits as he was carted off the field. He waved to the crowd with a smile on his face and then put his hands in the air.
Greer broke into the league in 2004 with the Bills. He came over to the Saints in 2009, appearing in 63 games over the last five years. He recorded an interception and 30 tackles in nine games this season.
