Meyers, who was listed as inactive, has a left knee injury that he initially suffered in the team's preseason finale Aug. 26. He has been dealing with varying levels of discomfort since that time, a source said.
This week, Meyers didn't participate in practice Wednesday and Thursday but was a limited participant Friday. He was hoping things would improve leading up to kickoff to give himself a chance to play.
Meyers has emerged as quarterback Mac Jones' go-to receiver. He was targeted 13 times in a Week 2 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, which was more than double the next pass-catcher. He was targeted a team-high six times in Week 1.
