WWL Saints Sideline Reporter Kristian Garic says the team expects Byrd to be ready to go in time for training camp.

Coach Sean Payton described the injury as "asymptomatic" and not causing Byrd any pain, but he says the team decided it was in the safety's best interest to get the surgery now during the offseason.

"If it was during the season, you wouldn't go through the procedure," Payton said.  "He'll start up training camp with no problem."
