It’s par for the course that players use the off season to get surgery to maintain their bodies. Last season, both Alshon Jeffrey and Brandon Graham had surgery following the 2017 season.
Let’s hope that our all-world DT’s wheel is back to normal in the next couple of months. The good news is he’s off the scooter, but right now the belief is that Fletcher Cox should be ready to go in time for training camp.
